I need a lot more in information about your system and the problem. In most cases, the heat sensor is the flame rod in the pilot assembly. One small screw to loosen, right next to it.

When the gauges in my truck fluctuate and the heat doesn't come on the way it should,does that mean the thermostat needs to be replaced?

You can replace the is relativity inexpensive to will lose some of the antifreeze from tne top of your engine due the thermostat being a little lower then the top of the radiator..HOWEVER....Having a GM truck I believe that you have two separate the heat not coming on properly..your inside the car heat system works by sensors and activation mechanisms that work/move the doors within the heat/cooling housing..The common problem is the activater that moves from heat to cool visa/versa is defective or tne inside door is not operating properly...the activater is not to much of a job just above the gas pedal on the end of the heat/cooling housing..the other..door is on tne inside and quite a job to get at...The other gauge problem,if more the one of the gauges are fluctuating it is your computer board electrical system powering the gauge cluster..A COMMON PROBLEM ON GM AND CHEVY TRUCKS AND VANS..they can be re-calibrated but must be removed...if only the heat may be your heat sensor on the engine block..again not a hard or expensive job..but is an important controls the the fans that cool the engine and senses the temp of the water going to your heater core...A defective one could be sending false readings to your inside heat sensors in the cab..I.E heat not coming on first bet would be CHANGE THE HEAT SENSOR.. Then go from there.Hope this helps..good luck

I have a 2005 blazer and the heat guage is not working. The fan blows out hot air but no reading from the guage.

R you talking about the temp gage on the dash? Maybe a problem with instrument cluster? Also, check coolant temp sensor.

No, it's advisable to disconnect the negative battery cable. Why do you wish to experiment?

Runs good when engine is cold, runs rough when engine heats up will a bad oxygen sensor cause this?

Generally no.
Oxygen sensors usually work or they dont .
If it was worn out usually you would see a change in fuel consumption.
It most probably is something being affected by the heat such as a cracked head which the crack will open up as engine gets hot.
It could also be from spark plugs and or leads breaking down, as overtime they are affected by heat.
other things affected by heat a electrical wires and connections,
Hope this was helpfull

I noticed that my boy's VW Chico 1.3 heat gauge were net working yesterday. I unscrwe the heat sensor and cleaned it and then the gauge worked. This morning it was not working again. Can the sensor be...

I think you hit on it when you cleaned the sensor. There is just an interruption to the electrical signal. Have tour lad sit in the car to look at the gauge whilst you wiggle the connection and wiring at the sensor. At some point you will isolate where the problem is; as you press or pull in one direction the gauge registers and in another the gauge fails. Sometimes a bit of dirt or corrosion in a connector is all it takes to break the signal. A fine wire brush and some iron wool is maybe all it takes to fix it. Explore this approach thoroughly before thinking about changing the sensor. If you do come to change it go to a breakers yard and take your lad with you, its a good educational experience as well as a good source of cheap parts

Soon as i turn on my heat my cooling fans come on first

It sounds like you do need a thermostat with your heat shut off and the gauge will raise a little then the car doesn't have that heat drawn from it indicating that you most likely do need a thermostat. As far as the fans coming on immediatly that could be a different problem it is most likely the coolant temperature sensor that tells the fan's when to come on. If this sensor says the coolant is hot the fans will come on immediatly. These are seperate problems as the coolant temperature sensor does not have anything to do with the cabin heating system. You should first check the level of your coolant is full, This could also cause your cabin heating system to perform poorly, and may have adverse effects to the engine cooling system. (fans)

Service engine soon light

Heat sensor or heated O2 sensor? These are 2 different things. After replacing the sensor the first time, did you remove the negative battery cable for at least 30 seconds? This will re-set the ECM.
