    Angry Help Urgent

    Hi i aint been on for a while but im back with big probs ( or i think)
    And sorry for long story Looked on search for an hour to find nothing.

    comming home from work (25mile trip m/way) my temp guage reads normal 85 when moving (70mph ish) im traffic it usually reaches 90/95. After a few traffic jams i peeped at my temp guage whilst sat still approx 98 ( margin off red) i was gettin worried by then. Set off agian temp goes to 95 (70mph) now unsure whats happening came to another jam back to temp 98-99. opens window hears the fan come on but temp not going down. Gets home at last leaves car too cool. Went to my local supermarket temp goes to standard 85 traveling. Pulls over to let misses out sat there for 2 mins temp goes on red Turns car off opens bonnet steaming up as i do gets back in car heaters go on (hotroom) windows open, temp stays in red with fan running like a trooper but temp same.
    Any diagnosis? Need car tomorrow

    take the thermostat out mate, it will run cold until u get a replacement - even try tapping it with a hammer when its running it may be sticky, whatever u do dont keep running it into the red or ul warp the head
