Question about Cars & Trucks
With the temp gauge the sender unit is a resistor that is affected by heat. The hotter the water the less resistance the hotter the reading on the gauge. Knowing that check for a wire shorting out to the sender unit or replace the sender.. If you have a carby it sounds like you have a problem with the accelerator pump not working. This gives a squirt of fuel as you open the throttle to compensate for the extra air coming in to the engine. If you have efi. accelerator position sensor may be a good place to start looking

it is most likey a sticking thermostat it either gets stuck closed or open in your case closed so collant isnt getting to the heater core and all you get is cold air blowing into the truck.
its a simple fix you can either do it your self or take it to a mechanic. now remember there are differnt thermostes so think about the climat you live in and get one according to that

I assume the car drives okay the rest of the time at varying speeds and conditions?
It may be you have an air lock in the system (have you had work done or lost coolant?) or the sensor or its wiring is faulty.
Check the level of your coolant tank when the car is at full temp and idling - for safety - the tank is opaque you should be able to see the water level - do not open when hot !

did u bleed the air from the cooling system? if not u need to do that, u have air pockets getting around the thermostat, to bleed raise the front up as high as poss with a floor jack, fill the radiator and coolant recovery tank as full as poss, then run engine until it reaches normal temp, then shut it down and run cold water over the radiator,this will draw the coolant out and the system will bleed the air out.
