this is gonna be a wild guess... but i wonder if theres a cat/temp issue that youre only occasionally seeing show up as high engine temp on the gauge, but there isnt enough flow at the cats causing them to overheat.
maybe some kind of blockage at the pickup, or issue with a cooling line to the cats....

but as mentioned you need to get the codes read. thats what theyre there for - to guide the diagnostics. definitely start there.
