overheating

I have a 98 Ranger, recently the temperature gauge starting showing hot. It goes back down when I start moving again, and back up as soon as I slow. I suspect a thermostat or fan... but I'm not sure how to test. Any help would be appreciated.

Pitch the stat for a new one and flush the system. You may have an air pocket.

Tell us what you find after bleeding the system, changing the coolant and stat.
