Question about 2001 Chevrolet Silverado
When idling the temperature gauge goes back to normal but when you excellerate, it goes back to almost max.
Check your fan clutch fo proper function. if you can free spin it its bad. or take something and try to stop it while its running at operating temperature, if you can easily stop it its bad. It should stop turning within 2 seconds of turning off the vehicle, if it doesnt its bad. Also suspect a bad water pump with worn out vanes. Sounds like you dont change your coolant regular, all of this is from lack of maintanance on the cooling system. also take a temperature differential from the inlet and outlet of the radiator, anything over 40 degrees and your radiator is stopped up. Themostat etc.....
