Have the system pressure checked. This is simple and quick. Puts the system under pressure and helps to locate leaks. Check cap too. System needs to maintain pressure.
Some engines have a "Bleed" valve in the head so you can force the air out of the system as you fill it with coolant. May want to chekc to see if yours has one.
\Fluxing gage indicates coolant sometime there and sometimes not. Low level. Sound says the same thing.

You may have an air pocket in your system which some times happens. One way to get rid of it is to take the upper hose off on the engine side, fill your system with water until it runs out from your engine block, replace the hose, start your car turn you heater on and set to hi keep the radiator cap loose until the temp start to rise then close tight. Once the air pocket had been remover you can drain some of the water from the radiator using the lower drain plug and add antifreeze.

Hi. the vdc at the sensor seems to be fine. if the ground is sufficient, i would replace the gauge. its malfunctioning. Check for loose connection at gauge before replacing the gauge.

the dommed part of the T-stat goes up, it won't go in backwards as memory serves me, what u almost certainly have going on here is the Air temperature control electric bend door actuator s defective, and the door is stuck in the cold air position in the heating/ac duct, to replace this the dash must be removed from the car..

LabRat was right on the money! Here is the fix. I have seen this happen numerous times in Fords. The engineers, in their infinite wisdom, placed the heater core HIGHER than the engine block. The coolant gets low and ya get an air pocket in the core. The fix...drain cooling system, remove t-stat and drill a SMALL hole in the flat part, reinstall it with hole straight up (It's an air bleed, if ya didn't figure that out), refill the system NOT THE REGULAR WAY!!!! Remove the hose that runs from the engine to the heater core. Use a funnel and SLOWLY pour coolant in, until the reservoir is full. This will eliminate the air lock in the core.
