Temperature

Your 1999 CRV temperature gauge keeps working on and off also the heat does not get real hot unless the gauge is working do you need a new thermostat?

It sounds like the guage is working fine. Since you have little or no heat when you say the guage isn't working it sounds like the thermostat is getting stuck open causing your coolant to be constantly cooled (it isn't closing so the engine can warm up sufficiently to provide heat). Replace your thermostat and I bet your problem will go away.
