My temperature never reached 105C but it made me very nervous reaching 100. I am used to it on my 1985 300TD but not on this car. The temperature just fluctuated like crazy today, on the open road it would drop to about 82-85 but as soon as I stopped at the traffic light it would climb back up to 100. I also must mention that the front fender on the passenger side of the car (next to coolant overflow jug) was extremely hot. I mean, to the point where I could barely touch it. The car sometimes smells like coolant very strong but it doesn't leak anywhere.
Any more help is greatly appreciated!!
