Default Temperature gauge question 07 PT

Hello everyone,

A month ago I had a over heating issue that I finally have fixed.

Now, When engine is cool and I start to drive as my temperature gauge reaches for normal it doesn't STOP it quickly goes all the way up to RED making a ding sound (as if it was re-setting or something) then drops back to normal.

I ask this, because it keeps doing it every time I start driving at cool engine temps.
Has anyone had this issue?
**note: NO check engine light

What I have replaced for the over heating issue:
-Radiator + Fan + harness+ relays from dealer.
-Cap and thermostat
-ECT sensor
-timing belt-water pump

Geeez

I'd guess it IS overheating.

ECT = CTS? (Coolant temp sensor)?

Overheats will destroy the vernatherm in thermostat, or there could still be a leak and causing engine to be full of air-
Do this, when it goes to the ding ding, open hood and toss some water (or just spit) directly on head or block- see if it sizzles.

You could bleed it, plenty of posts on how- to's, basically you open the brake bleeder looking thing with 3/8 socket (10mm six point will work in a pinch) until bubbles stop coming out

Hopefully I'm wrong, but if it is over heating that's not good for it.

Yes, CTS (Coolant temp sensor)
Its not over heating the, gauge just goes up makes a ding and drops back down.
I thought I got all the bubbles out.

I have only found that the connector is bed but, have no idea where to buy a Engine Cooling Temperature Sensor connector.

When I disconnect the connector. The temp gauge drops all the way down.
The ETC was bought from autozone
