Hi guys need a bit of advice please

driving home today and noticed my temp gauge rising to 100 degrees, didn't exceed further than that and monitored all the way home. I was stationary at lights but did not seem rise. I have noticed lately before this happened that when at idle speed have noticed the revs to idle slightly erratic for about 5-8 secs then its back to normal. this happens occasionally and thought it could be the fans kicking in. Is this normal ???? Or do have have a fan issue. if so can someone send me the link or topic to check this.. Many thanks

Make sure outside is +4 and stick your fans on auto, the fan should spin slowly. If it doesn't then you sir need a extern resistor pack.
