What would make a 1988 Nissan Sentra run hot when idling When you are sitting at a light for more than a couple of minutes the gauge keeps getting closer to hot?

the most obvious reason assuming that the radiator is full of fluid would be the radiator fan. the wiring for the fan might be broken or just not working. the motor might for some reason be burned out or broken. but the most obvious would be in the thermostat. this device is normally in the engine near the water pump but im not sure where it is on your car. to sum up what it does : it tells the fans when to come on when the coolant gets to a pre set temperature. if this is faulty then the fan will not turn on thus not pulling cool air through the radiator when you are sitting still that would travel through it at driving speeds. the best fix would be to take it to a trustworthy mechanic and tell him what is wrong. i hope this gives you an idea of what might be wrong with your car.
