Alfa GT 1.9 Jtdm Overheating

This has happen twice now over the last 6 weeks where the indicated outside temp is over 30c and the Climate control (CC) is on and car is stationary.

This happen yesterday 24/6/08, whilst we were on a short blast to Windsor from London. We got stuck in very slow moving traffic when the misses noticed that the inside temp had increased and was blowing out warm air. The outside temp was showing 32c and the engine temp +95c approx.

Switching off the CC made the engine temp go down but it was still over 90c. On the move engine temp went down to normal 90c and indicated outside temp was 22/23c.

When we arrived at our destination the engine was left on, CC was on and I could here the engine working away trying to cool the car. With in 5 minutes the inside temp rose and the outside temp was 24/25c engine temp started to rise.

Any ideas what the problem could be?

I'm not sure why warm air should be coming from the CC but in hot conditions, stationary, 95' indicated would not concern me.

between 80 and 100 is normal for most cars.

anything over 100 would concern me.

Just make sure the coolant is clean and a good mix not using tap water with no air pockets
