A: The temperature fluctuation when turning on...

The temperature fluctuation when turning on and off the heat suggests that you may have an overheating issue. The thermostat is a more commonly known part to fail when it comes to an engine overheating. I would recommend having the thermostat checked out by an expert. When the thermostat is faulty or stuck open or closed this can cause erratic temperature fluctuations in the engine leading eventually to a more severe overheating issue.
