Temperature gage

My temperature gage when I start my car in the morning and the temp gage reads at the line in between the 160 and 210 and when it warms up it will sit at the line between 210 and 260 I turned on the heaters in the front and the back to try to take the heat off of the engine... Today turning on and off the engine the gage read almost back around to 100 but then after start and turning the car back on it went back to 160 after several times of turning the car back on and off.. Has anyone ever seen this??

Does the gage peg when you turn the key off? If yes then the stepper motor is bad If not then it could be the sensor or thermostat

You can use a tech-2 to read sensor values and see if they match the cluster readout
