Might be oil in the loom (red plug into ECU under driver's seat) causing a misfire.

Did the gauge go up instantly or creep up? If instantly, could be a poor earth (most likely white connector which screws onto a terminal inside the engine bay, directly in front of instrument panel.)

it could be your water pump. mine temp went up instantly to the red and then when to the blue after. cos the system didn't have any coolant at the point of the coolant sensor.

after letting it sit for awhile, all's back to normal. but if it keeps doing it, there is a PROBLEM. fix it before some worse happens.
