What temperature is it getting to?
What temperature is it dropping to when moving?


Normal running temperature should be 90degC all the time.

Are the fans working? In traffic you should be be able to hear the rad fan kick in at 90.

90degC is the perfect temperature.

You need a new thermostat because yours has failed and stuck open because it shouldn't run cooler than that.

You probably need a new radiator too. So change both at the same time.
