Default Temperature Gauge Fluctuation

What could cause my temperature gauge to fluctuate between normal and hot if my my RPMs and speed are in sync? I've also noticed my heater will blow cold air at times. Thermostat, radiator?

I would start with the thermostat, could be the cause of the problems you listed.

Have you replaced the Thermostat?

Radiator failures are rare unless you punctured it or something similar.
