Is the car actually getting hot. If not, you might've replaced wrong sensor, there's temperature sensor sending unit that tells you what the coolant temperature is and temperature switch that turns on your cooling fans.

the temp gauge goes all the way over H.then itll come back down some.up down,just like that.has gotten to the point of blowing off the radiator hoses a couple times

and i already replaced the temperature sensor sending unit
