SOURCE: Temp gauge
the sender for the gauge is on the cylinder head near the spark plug if you unplug it the gauge should stay all the way cold then ground it out it will go all the way hot if that reads like that replace the coolant sensor

My mechanic in our town did a quick computer check. Car computer indicated a low level of antifreeze, he topped it up, cleared all messages off the car computer and said to watch the the heat guage for any further irregularities. I'll keep an eye on it, love the car, great mileage fun to drive.

Assuming the t-stat is good, I'd look at the wiring next. Make sure the connector is clipped onto the water temp sensor/back of the gauge and that the wiring is not chaffed, etc. If that all looks good, replace the coolant temp sensor...they're $20 or so. If it still does it, the gauge is bad.

Well , I know $800 is a big bill , but think of it this way , you got a bunch of new stuff on the car. The timing belt replacement alone would cost someone almost $800 to have done by a mechanic , and if it broke and destroyed your engine how much would that have cost. It's always nice to solve the problem on the first try , but at least it is fixed now , and you won't have to worry about any of that other stuff for a long time.
