The last few days whenever i sit for long periods of time at a light or a drive thru for example my 97 tibby comes close to being in the red. After i take off and resume driving the temp drops back to a normal level. It dosnt help that the last 2 days have been 100 degrees either. Just wondering if this is the norm or something to do with the fans or thermostat?

1st you could be low on coolant!!
2nd Water pump is bad.
3rd Thermostat stuck in closed or almost closed position
4th restriction in the waterway, like through your Radiator

If it starts cooling down again while driving and the fans turn on then the water pump is still working although it is possible its not working very well. When I had this problem it was the radiator fan motor that went out. You may have a problem with the thermostat, its cheap to replace and you can do it yourself.
