Recently I noticed my temp gauge climb to (100C+) in my 84 230CE while sitting in traffic and it seems to be doing it a lot lately. Once I get moving at a good pace the temp starts going back to normal (80C). It has basically the same engine as in the 190E's. Visually everything looks good, coollant clean, no leaks, radiator clear of any obstructions. This has me concerned since it has an aluminum head and overheating will certainly kill it. I was wondering where I should start looking, this is my first ever gasser MB. If it were a diesel I wouldn't worry as much and I'd know where to start.
Any help will be really appreciated.
