plugged radiator ?,fans are turning on ? what did the coolant look like when you changed the stat. ? hopefully it's not a head gasket , if it can sit there and idle for some time and the gauge stays at operating temp. probably not , pull the oil fill cap look at the bottom of it and let us know what you see .
