OVERHEATING

2005 Mini Cooper S • 4 cylinder FWD Manual • 67,000 miles

My 2005 mini cooper s runs hot while in traffic, when I turn the a/c it seems to help or if I start driving again. Sometimes it will spike a little while driving then cool down. Coolant level is ok the warning lights have never come on

Check and test the coolant temperature sensor and radiator fan relay

Ok, thank you sounds like I should take it to a mini dealer. I bought the car used and this first trouble I have had in 2 years so I can't complain.
