interesting reason for fluctuating engine temperature gauge.

so my engine temperature gauge was jumping like someone in heat and I even got check engine codes. I thought it's coolant temp sensor connection.
I did not touch the coolant temp sensor connection.
I replaced the drive belts and the problem was solved. I guess water pump was not spinning consistently or something.

My temp gauge fluctuation was caused by a leak in my radiator. The pressure fluctuation probably did it. I guess that makes 3 reasons for that to happen.

It never fails lol. When I have a problem someone on here has it to. My girls 2001 alty was doing the same thing. She said the temp gauge was going from cold to hot for like 15 minutes. Like it was floating. I drove the car and nothing (of course). No leaks coming from the radiator or hoses and everything looks legit. She has however noticed a drop in MPG. That I'm still trying to figure out. Leaning toward the O2 sensor there. Sorry for getting off topic.
