Hi Doc, Let me point something out here.
Make sure you are not looking for a problem that does not exist. This car is designed to get hotter at idle. The fan is not even programmed to come on until approximately 226-228 degrees which can seem very high on the gauge, but is completely normal.
Try unplugging the coolant temperature sensor with the engine running. That will probably set a code that will have to be cleared later. If the fan starts them, you do not have a problem.
