Temperture gauge goes up when climbing a hill in the heat of day

My temperture gauage goes up when I go up a mountain road here in Utah. The needle does not touch the red part of the gauge but gets way to near. It goes back to normal when I drive on a straight strech of road.

You could have a:

1) failing thermostat (bad)

2) failing water pump (worse)

3) failing head gasket (worst)

Or possibly, radiator problems.

You need to have this checked and fast. If #3 is true, you could be warping your head right now.

1994 vw golf 1.9 overheating


First question is what constitutes "overheating".
Since the car has been parked for years, the thermostat could be sticking closed.
The cooling system could have air pockets and need to be bled.
The water pump may be corroded inside and not pumping enough volume.
If the gauge goes above half way, the fans should start up. But half way should be more or less normal, not hot yet.
I would look at flow problems first, beginning with removing the thermostat and driving it without one for a few days. Also check and see if there is a process to bleed the cooling system of air.

Have you checked out the water pump? Most of the time, you can feel movement in the /head shaft area before it fails. Water pumps usually go slowly, pumping less and less water (making the engine run hotter). The also get noisy when they start to fail.

Temperture gauge tacks out when turn ignition switch


The temperature sending unit is probably bad. This will cause the circuit to ground out and send the needle all the way to hot. You can unplug the sending unit(it will be on the block near the radiator hose) and see if it still does it. If it does it's the sending unit.

Temperture gauge show's hot after a one minutes running


Most likely the heat sensor.
Ensure you replace the gauge sensor with the correct type to suit your gauge.
(dont confused it with the overtemp alarm switch sensor).
Check you've got the right sensor by shorting it out to frame/ground and observing the gauge movement.
