while the guage may not always be completey accurate due to calibaration, this is normal operation. that vehicle, like most, has on oem 195f thermaostat, at idle the temperature will rise beyond this because the cooling fans are not programed to activate until approximatley 221f. the fans will then turn off at approx. 205f. turning on the HVAC can alos command fans of an this will slow the increase in temperature at idle however temperature may still rise above 200f due to added load of the air comprerssor
