Good Advice here, i have a 2.0 TS and it has temperature moments especially in traffic..
However prior to last weeks hot weather i have never seen it running that high, the thermostat runs normal, opening and closing until i've been on the go for about 45 mins by then everything is upto temp and i get a constant 88 deg temp indicated as i drive. That is normal i'm told it only loses it once i'm in stop start traffic.
The diagnosis at the moment is that the cooling fan isnt running at high speed...however the Alfa tech who works on it says it should be ok to 100 deg, i'm paranoid and dont want it running that high so resistors it is. But also the A/C need regassing and that is another method of heat transfer from the cooling system, thats my next tick box to be done
Would suggest you get it checked out as it shouldnt cut out so the crank sensor is another good place to start checking.
Surprisingly when mine was running warmer than normal, a laser thermometer on the thermostast didnt register the same temperature as the gauge but that is of very little comfort especially with a performance alloy engine.....

When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth
