coolent levels are at the correct levels.

It can be, might be that you sat still long enough that no air moving through the radiator, the car warmed up.

This appears to be a bad thermostat. Are you comfortable changing one? It'* basically, draining a little coolant, two 10mm bolts, some gasket cleaning and reassembly.

If it was the spring or summer I would have no problem trying to fix it myself, however I do not have a garage and it is COLD and the wind is blowing about 20 mph sustained, call me a whimp

I'll go with smart wimp.

The other thing is, when you bring it in...they will verify the diagnosis.

Thanks for all your help!! I just called and the dealer will fix it for 89 bucks. Getting fixed this afternoon

This forum sure does take a load of stress off you when you call the dealer and have an idea what is wrong with your car.

Thanks again
