My temp gauge is not moving off cold in winter, summer is ok. No heat in cab

every cold day

1997 Dodge dually diesel. Temp gauge started jumping earlier this week. Will go up into the hot range and then instantly drop back down to cold. Then slowly warm back up and drop again. This is taking place during my normal 10 mile trip home from work. No load on the truck. Any ideas?

If I have air in the injector pump due to a leak in the return side of the fuel system, how do I get the air out of the injector pump?

Last week out of the blue it would die when I would slow down to stop and to start it I had to have it floored then keep pumpin the gas to keep it runnin for about 30sec..I took it to a mechanic and he put it on a computer it checked out ok and he took the fuel filter out and it was black so he changed it and the truck started right up and has been runnin great..went 1000 miles and its doing it again and its only been a week since the fuel filters been what can it be their are no warning lights on the dash either

My cruise control light comes on but it won't set.
