    The needle on mine does go up and down but is relevant to driving conditions, i.e. when accelerating on motorways its starts to rise then when coasting it will drop. Is this what is happening in your case or is there no pattern to it, seems an odd one if it is just spontaneous, may be a faulty temp sender unit.

    Your thermostat has stuck in the open position...however, if it NEVER goes over 80, even when stuck in traffic, then I would query the temp sender.

    Regarding intermittent high and then low readings,
    This could be a lack of coolant, going round the engine, so when flow is reduced the engine warms up, and when the limited amount of water goes back round it's cycle past the sender, it cools suddenly, and then the cycle repeats...

    Otherwords check your coolant level, top up if necessary and remedy any potential leaks before you over-heat and warp your cylinder head.

    Had this a long time ago in my cavalier
