Had this exact problem on my 94 oldsmobile cutlass 3.1. Replaced everything to find out it is the curved radiator hose right above the waterpump. It got stopped up and kept coolant from circulating properly. Now heat works great no over heating problems, however this did not fix gage, but was told that it was broke because of the situation, and could replace if I wanted. :D
