My temp gauge goes almost all the way up to the top then goes down below the half way mark. I just got checked for leaks and I have none and the antifreeze levels are good. 1992 Mustang GT. I have an aluminum radiator by the way with all new hoses.

Fan clutch going bad or sticking thermostat. My '92 goes one past the halfway point then returns to the middle of the gauge when the electric fan kicks on

Make sure your thermometer is still good, sometimes they stick until too high temps and then release after that. It should be cheap enough go ahead and buy a new one and put it in.

maybe you need a new thermostat or you have air in the line and its not a bad leaky head gasket
