Temp gauge is not working right

Asked by Dec 07, 2015 at 10:43 AM about the 2000 Nissan Maxima SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2000 Nissan Maxima and the temp gauge goes to the middle then will go back down to cold and stay for a little while then go back to the middle. I changed the one thermostat the other is about a yr old. What do you think it could be?
