Why would the temperature gauge in a 1996 Chevy truck fluctuate randomly?

Sounds like a loose connection at the coolant temperature sender. Or, the truck is low on coolant and air bubbles are passing by the sensor. This, along with a gurgling heater core, is a classic symptom of coolant that is too low before the truck overheats. Paying attention to these clues allowed me to fill up a friend's truck with coolant as it was almost a gallon low, and he didn't even know it was leaking (Dexcool). If you are losing coolant, you may have an intake leak. It is a common problem around 65 to 80 thousand miles. I would have this checked, you most likely won't see a leak, unless you look from below by the back of the intake. It ususally drips out there.

What does a bad coolant temperature sensor do?

A bad sensor gives an inaccurate reading of the temperature of the critical antifreeze/coolant in an auto/truck engine. The sensor sends a message to the gauge and may "show" no reading or it may show a "Pegged hot reading". If the gauge doesn't show any change from the time you start the engine through the first 5 minutes of operation it is likely bad. there may or may not be overheating happening, most engines run fine without a functioning sensor, but you just won't know if you are operating in the too hot range. Operating an engine "too hot" for even short periods will damage it quickly.
