a bad thermostat is one cause , second the water pump may be defective, and last you may have a engine block problem , first change the thermo stat and put in a new gasket with the thermo stat , but also , if this doesnt work check the little sending unit in side of engine block on the side of engine for it could be sending fake readings to your temp unit in dash board , if you install a new sending unit and a thermo stat and gasket , then the sending unit in dashboard is bad , providing your water pump is working !
