Hello. I would need to know if it was your head gaskets that you changed and if this was occurring before you did that. If the temperature is going up and down then you may have a defective thermostat, a bad fan, a clogged radiator, or a bad hose. I would need to see when it gets hot to be able to diagnose if it is an air flow issue or a problem with coolant circulation. If this was not occurring before the gasket change then it is possible that the heads were not machined correctly.
