at times my temperature gauge goes almost to hot when i am sitting idle or
slowed down once I give it gas it goes back to normal does not happen all the
time but I've noticed it a few times with the last month or so
I'd suspect a problem with the cooling fan. Fans work constantly with AC on. Turn on the AC and see if they run. If they do, you probably just have a defective engine coolant temperature sensor. If they don't, you have a blown fuse or relay, defective fan clutch or wiring, bad fan temperature switch, or bad fan motors.
