thermostat gauge just rises to hot quickly once on the road. if I go downhill without gas, it cools down. if I turn the heat on full blast, it also cools down a bit . had all my fluids checked, etc. all seem good.
What seems to make the problem better or worse? worse going up hill, better going downhill

thanks, I think they are original parts. it was my dad's car... car only has 55k miles on it, though. should I start with one specific item? what would that be? the temp sensor?

Check timing belt, they last for 90k or 10 years, way over on time!! water pump should be changed at that time.
