You mean the temp gauge rises. May need to bleed the air out of the cooling system. Make sure your fans are working. If it persist then have test ran to confirm or rule out a head gasket failure. Block check test for exhaust in the cooling system. Compression test is done also to confirm compression leaking, May see steam exiting tail pipe is another sign or bubbles in or boiling coolant. I would for check the fans first and do a bleed on the cooling system to rule it out.
