Explanation & Answer

Hi,

I would suspect the following

1. Bad or failing thermostat
2. Weak or failing Radiator fan( if electric)/ fan clutch
3. Air pocket in the system. If your car has a bleeder, warm up your car and open the bleeder to let the trapped air escape. Most cars are not equipped with the so called bleeder.
