I am having a problem with my engine running hot. It runs fine when I have on the heat, but when I turn on the AC or ride without the AC, the temp hand moves from normal operating temp (half way mark) all the way over to the 3 quarters mark on the temp gauge. It has never passed that point. It will get there, then it will slowly fall back to normal operating temp, and then rise again. I am not losing any coolant and I am unsure of what could be causing this. I asked 2 repair shops and one person told me that it was normal for my car and engine to do that and the other repair shop told me that it was nothing to worry about altogether. I am unsure of what to think because I never had a car that runs hot like this.
