It is an OEM thermostat?
An auto parts store can test the cap to see if it can hold pressure.
Any coolant leaks?
Use care removing a cap on a warm engine.

Maybe you could take an infra-red thermometer and check the upper hose temp after a long drive. It's slightly possible that the coolant temp sensor is the problem.
