Is the cooling fan working? If so it could be cracked head gasket. Need to have compression checked in cylinders

Do you have a constant voltage regulator? I am having a problem with my temp guage reading hot while the actual water temp is around 185 degrees. I have been told it might be the CVR as mentioned above.
