WHEN I AM AT A RED LIGHT OR STUCK IN TRAFFIC, MY OVERHEATING GAUGE GOES ALL THE WAY TO HOT. ONCE I START DRIVING IT GOES BACK TO NORMAL. THE FANS ARE WORKING AND THE ANTIFREEZE IS FULL. I HAVE NOT OVERHEATED YET

Hav eit pressure checked for a head gasket and check radiator. If you feel cold spots on radiator when hot or normal with fans shut off and disconnected. There should be no cold spots or loose corroded fins.
