Default 98 dodge ram no heat and fluctuating temp gauge

i have a 98 dodge ram my temp gauge is fluctuating up to 230 down to about 205 i also noticed when the gauge gos up if i hit the gas it would go down almost instantly also the heat will stay hot on low for about 10 mins but on high it will go cold. to get the heat to go hot again i would have to turn the heat off and on again.

Your engine temp problem could possibly be your water pump. the fins may be gone so at idle or low rpms the pump isn't cycling much anti freeze then your temp goes down when you get on the gas cause the pump is doing something. As for your heater problem its probably this http://www.heatertreater.net/magento...php/dodge.html.
