Your temp gauge working improperly will not make your car overheat. The gauge is simply there for you to monitor your temps in the event that it actually does overheat.

HEATING ISSUES


One way to tell a bad thermostat in a car is if the car overheats frequently even if there is water in the radiator.Stuck open - no heat from heater, temp gauge hardly moves off of cold.
Stuck closed - overheats engine, temp gauge quickly climbs to hot.listen for any rubbing, grinding, or whining noises from the pump. look under water pump while running, if pump is going bad. water will come out of weep hole on the bottom of the pump. good-day!

Sounds like you could be low on coolant, even more so because the air starts to cool down, check coolant level with engine cold, never open a radiator when hot.

Car is running hot (temp gauge rises above normal)


Try the overflow tank cap. The seal will go bad and not hold the psi causing the water to flow out this is something you will not always see which will cause the engine to overheat or temp gauge to rise. Also the thermostat could be sticking and cause the temp gauge to rise. Are the fans turning on when the temp gets high? If so then I would resort to the above first. If the fans are not coming on, the relay or fan/s could be the problem.

Temp gauge pegs left and a/c when runs overheats engine


Why do you need to know where the temp sensor is. It sounds like it is working properly. Check for thermostat not opening completely, or a clogged radiator.

You have air in the cooling system, it needs bleeding, this is best done from the heater hoses. you cannot have a heating or cooling sysem that is not pressurised. no water no heater no demister no temp guage
