Default 207 overheating when idling

Hi All,

Everything is fine with my car how ever when I get to normal operating temperature and every time i am sat still in traffic or parked up my temperature seems to rise to near the top of the gauge and then the fam comes on and the the temperature goes back to normal temperature and then 2 minutes later it happens again. It come up today to stop as the engine temp is to high.

Has anyone got any ideas as it's bugging me?

Thank you

The fan comes on as soon as the heat goes above 90 degrees

You are most likely hearing the fan on high speed it should also run at a lower speed to keep airflow through radiator and maintain lower temp

Sounds like it's working properly to me. Does it puke coolant?. It could be the temperature gauge isn't completely accurate. I gave a friends 206 a major service last week, and noticed the gauge under read slightly.
If the car isn't throwing out coolant you have nothing to fix!.
