my x14xe has recently got this problem...

sitting in traffic, temperature gauge creaps past 100*C put the heaters on full to cool it down but the heaters are blowing cold air... once on the move the heaters are working great and the temp gauge comes back to normal...

i have plenty of water in the system... so where does my problem lie?

just wana know other peoples thoughts before i start splashing my cash

Possible new water pump?? Does it heat up quickly on idle?

Mine drops to warm if I stop for a while, I just hold the revs at 2k until they get hot again
