Could be the thermostats or the poppet needs service.

Thermostats catch all kinds of junk and will corrode up as will any metal (dissimilar metal corrosion) Pull it/them out and clean them and check for proper operation. The poppet valve works off pressure as well, so do not rule out. A couple years ago I was dealing with bouncing water pressure that turned out to be a bad gasket between the mount halves.
