Check your thermo fan relays. The low speed ones can be faulty.

Thx Guys.
The happen is when my car stand still, at traffic light or wtever. It will stay between AL. But when i get it run. It's goes up to M.
What i did. I had a new water pump, new thermostat, new radiator and new Thermo Fan. But it still happen.
Now i should try on the relay then. But which one is the low speed relay? And does anyone know how long can the relay normally last for?
Thz

P.S. I think i lost stage 2 fan. As the fan will get into stage 1 when the car start to get warm. But it does not seems to me that the fan kick to stage 2 when the car start to build up heat.
But when i turn i the A/C, 2 fans kick into stage 3 together.

Is it actually overheating? Or just running hot? Mine sits between the A & L normally and between the O & R on a hot day with the A/C on. Try using a colder thermostat and see if that helps. And perhaps get the entire cooling system reverse flushed to get rid of any crap that has built up over the years.

Should sit between A/L on the temp gauge if running the correct thermostat.
