make sure to get the gasket with the thermostat if it doesn't come with it. also, were you checking the radiator for coolant or just the reservoir?

well changing your thermostat is quick (10-30 mins depending on who you are) and cheap (~$15). do that, then if you still are getting fluctuating temps, then it is something else. if you are not loosing coolant at all, it is most likely the temperature sending unit (or is there another name?).

When my 95 hatch did this, the ground connecting the engine at the top of the valve cover was loose. I tightened it and the gauge funtioned normally again

next time it overheats, touch the upper radiator hose and the lower radiator hose. if the upper is hot and the lower is cold then do replace your thermostat. if not check the temperature sending unit. it is below your distributor, a single wire.
