COOLANT TEMP GAUGE ON CHEVY

1997 Chevrolet Venture

My coolant temperature gauge on my 1997 Chevy Venture indicates a very high temperature ( in the red zone) when the car is idling or when I am stopped at a traffic light. The car starts to hesitate like it was going to stall. When I am driving the car, the coolant temperature gauge indicates a normal temp. My Venture has about 90.5k miles and it is a 3.4 liter 6 valve engine. Any idea what it could be? Thanks
