Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Heat went out and now the guage goes up and down and now it steamed up,
is this a thermostat and who fixes them? I am not paying a grand for this, I am
sure it is not covered under bumper to bumper warranty either.

Yes, sounds to me that your Thermostat is bad! for a thermostat replacement shouldn't cost you No where near a grand. should be an easy fix. Unless it got so hot it warped the head and blown a head gasket!

The first indication of a problem is when the heater quits blowing hot air, that means there is usually a loss of coolant, check the radiator level cold, if it is low refill it with coolant and take to a shop to be checked, I suspect early stages of a blown headgasket, the shop will know what to look for.
