My previous '88 with the A4LD and my current '88 with the T-5 both
behaved similar to this.  Although they did not "go all the way to hot"
when the guages were working properly.  Close, but not all the way.  This
is a common, but annoying, beahavior.

There is a resistor(? or something) which controls electricity to the
fuel, temp, and oil pressure gauge.  This thing wacked out enough that
there was a TSB on it.  Watch your other guages and see if they read
higher than normal when your temp is going "too hot."  This really
freaked me out when it first happened, then I noticed the pattern of the
three guages which were not themselves measuring electrical flow.

I presume you mean often, not that the fan is always, all the time,
