My girlfriend has a ford escort wagon, L SEFI, while driving in city traffic yesterday she noticed the temp guage, while sitting at red lights, would start to show a rise in temperature, almost into the red zone, but while driving would come back down toward normal. after a while the car stalled and would not restart. i checked the coolent level and it appeared to be ok.
