Sounds more to me like you have a faulty thermostat, is your fan coming on? if not its your thermostat< its not opening when the car gets up to temp allowing the water around the engine into the radiator to cool, if youve no sludge in the oil i would def go for the thermostat, easy way to check take it out and put it in boiling water and watch to see if it opens.

Pull the connecting wire off the temperature sensor and ground it to see if the guage goes up. If it does then your sensor unit is faulty and must be replaced!
