Mark is correct. That temperature is normal. Esp in traffic, the engine temp might run over 100C. If it stays over 100C for an excessive amt of time, I would worry a little. But this is not too out of the ordinary. My car runs at 100C when sitting in traffic. Once I get going though, it gets right back down to 82 or so. How was it last summer?
