Sounds a bit like a bad earth somewhere. Have a look at the wiring and make sure that all contacts are free from rust; especially at the front of the car.

Temp gauge stays cold


If the thermostat is bad (i.e. stuck open at all times), this would allow coolant to circulate in the engine even when it is below the desired operating temperature. This leads to OVERcooling of the engine. You can either replace the thermostat as a first step or remove it and test it -- closed when cold, open when heated above 190-200F.

You have a Cold starting sequence that is similar to a choke. This system relies on getting a temperature signal back to the Computer. It should have at least 1 water sensor. Sometimes there are 2 sensors with one working the dash gauge and the other working the Cold start sequence. If you find 2 sensors just unplug 1 at a time and do this when the engine temperature has been rising. When you find the dash gauge sensor you will lose the reading on the dash gauge when it is unplugged. The remaining sensor would control the Cold start sequence, so replace that sensor.

Intermitant temperature


Check to make sure your thermostat works right by monitoring the warming up of your engine. With a completely cold engine, start and run the engine for a few minutes, then put your hand on the top radiator hose to monitor if and when it gets warm as the thermostat opens more and more and note the gauge reading( if it works) the top radiator hose should be unbearably hot within 5-8 minutes. If the therm. opens right it should close right aswell, staying open a little while eventhough the radiator may have cooled may be what you are experiencing causing the rapid cooling and is nothing to worry about. The Hose should not get warm very soon after starting the engine. Regarding you gauge, lets take one step at a time, verify proper op. or the therm.
