Sounds like the engine is starting to seize up when it is getting hot. Probably have warped the heads by now. You would need to do a compression test to verify a bad head gasket.

i used Mitsubishi triton,i used aircond evertime i driving,,when long driving aircond at time not cold,,i switched off aircond system,after 3-5minit i on back the aircond system and it become like a normal conditon,can u help me to soft this problem....

No, the compression is fine in the car, the engine is fine, no radiator leak, no loss of antifreeze or antifreeze smell, no headgasket leak. Not sure if the gauge just went up because of a sensor issue or if it reacted to fact that the transmission was not working correctly since the radiator helps cool the transmission or what.
