Question about 1999 Jeep Wrangler
Had faulty rad cap, replaced cap then temp gauge would jump up and down from around 210 to red line. Did not go up gradually but jumped. I replaced thermostat and Temp sensor but on the way home from work temp gauge went from 210 to red line..Engine did not appear to be running hot however.

SOURCE: Check gauges light comes on
check the colling fan to see if it kicks on at normal opperating temp 210'
it culd be air in the cooling system

the aux fan only works when the ac is on, and has come to a predetermined temp(?) i found this out while going up a long grade in the back country without the ac on and later found out the radiator was half plugged!

I had this same problem on a taurus and did all the things you did and found out after that the coolant reserviour bottle had a crack in the bottom of it

You can remove the thermostat and put in a pot of water and boil it.(should open near the stamped temp on yours, 195f) From what you have posted, ti seems that you have a partially obstructed radiator core and at present, it's just bad enough for the electric fan to deal with it. (you can actually see that the temperature fluctuations happen when the fan is on and off) If you do not clean out the radiator, eventually the fan will not be enough to lower the temp and it will begin to actually go into overheat.
