Odd occurance tonight

I was taking a drive this evening when I noticed my temp gauge rise rapidly and peg at the top of the gauge. That's never happened before so I'm like WTF !!!

It was a cool evening and it had been running cool the whole drive up until then.

I turned my heat on full blast and the temp dropped down to about half way on the gauge. I turned my heat back off then and it stayed at or below half way on the gauge the rest of my drive.

I did catch a whiff or two of a coolant smell making me think it wasn't just the gauge acting up...

My best guess is that my T-stat got stuck for a few minutes ??? Anyone else have an idea ?

I'd vote for the T-stat first. Cheap and easy.
