Those temps are perfectly fine, as long as it doesn't go over 210 during regular driving then you are fine. Sure do like to creep at stop lights in the summer though :driving:

Re: Help! Im loosing my mind! (3.1l not staring...)

sounds like vatts issue, if it has spark and fuel it should go(but it doesn't lol). It's probably your ignition being worn out.
