Oil level is fine. Coolant level is fine. Nothing plugging the fins on the radiator. Car is overheating; all the way to the top, in a very short distance. Coolant (in the reservoir) seems to still be reasonably cool to the touch. This seems to have happened all at once. Just had the car fully serviced a week ago.
