Almost sounds like the same symptons as my van. Turns out the guage was not the problem. The van was in fact running hot because the electric radiator fans were not kicking in when the engine was hot. I replaced the relay switches for the fans. There are two of these in the fuse panel under the hood. There has been no problem with overheating since

You definitely have a cooling system problem, you need to have it checked out before you cause expensive damage to the engine.

You are low on coolant. There is air in the coolant system. This is the reason it jumps high with no heat.

I have a 2000 chevy venture van with a 3.4 v-6. I recently replaced the radiator, water pump and thermistat and refilled the system, but it is still overheating. I was told to "bleed" the system...


two quick thoughts on this, is the thermostat in correctly? (copper colored end into the
engine block). And second thought is on some vechicles it may be possible to route
the belt incorrectly. Make sure that the overflow tube is correctly attached to the overflow tank as this will cause the fluid to dump on the ground and cause an air pocket
to form in the block. hope this is useful.

Overheating


If you are adding anti-freeze every time this happens, you are still loosing coolant some were. I assume there are no puddles on the garage floor or where you park the van? Check the oil dipstick and make sure the oil is not a "milky"color. Check the passenger side carpet for wetness, you may have to pull it back.
If all of that is OK, you are still burning the coolant by way of the intake gasket or head gasket.
Good luck, let me know.
Regards,
