Check/change your temp sensor first. Could also be a wiring problem, such as grounding out against something.

Check engine light comes on and then the temperature gauge goes up to hot

Mine did it too.... The problem is the Engine Power Relay.

The Engine Power Relay is in the relay box in the engine compartment. Aftermarket relay is cheap, but the original Ssangyong part will last many years longer.

Hope this helps.

Replaced thermostat and water pump. Continue to heat up and then "click" needle moves down to normal.

As soon as the temperature in the engine reachs the temperature of the thermostat rating i.e. 195 F or 95C, it opens. Then the temp. guage goes back to normal and the coolant heating in the engine begins again & the guage will even out after a number of thermostat openings. Make sure you retop off the the antifreeze after it has recicled a few time because of vapour lock etc. Good luck!
