Hello and thank you for contacting YouMechanic. When you unplug the temperature sending unit the problem goes away but the engine light comes on. Check the plug to the sending unit for any corrosion or debris. Look at the pins to the temperature sending unit and make sure that they are not bent or broken. If the sending unit and harness looks fine then you would need to replace the unit.
I recommend replacing the temperature sending unit and then running the engine. If you need help with diagnosing your Check Engine Light and rough running symptoms, then contact a professional, such as one from YourMechanic. One of our mobile technicians can come to your home to assist you with the necessary repairs.
