Temp guage starts to climb quite a bit when the car is idling in traffic for 4-5 mins. when i take off, the guage goeas back down to almost normal. Both fans are running and the coolant overflow bottle is full. Had a new radiator put in 2 years ago, just changed the oil and it is good. runs fine when car is moving, but guage climbs when idiling too long
