I have a 2004 dodge quad cab truck. While at red lights my temp gauge shows to be running hot. While driving the temp gauge goes back to normal temp. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks guys.

When you stop, so does the air flow from outside. As a result, the temp under the hood raises. After it hits a certain temp, the fan clutch is to tighten causing the cooling fan to spin faster, drawing outside air through the radiator to cool the engine. If the clutch fan isn't working, it will heat up when you are sitting still.

Let me know if you have other questions.
