I have a 2005 Honda accord 4cylinder with about 243k miles. I was in dead stop traffic last night for a good 45-50 mins and the temperature gauge starting going very close to the max temp. I did a quick google and put the car into neutral and revved it at about 1500rpm to reduce the heat (which brought it down significantly). After getting home I went to check the car thinking the radiator fans went out but both are still running fine. Oddly enough, my coolant seems extremely low for refilling it 4-5 months back.. I was trying to track down a leakage point but couldn’t quite identify one yet. Not sure if anyone might think it might be due to something else.. I did take some photos of possible leakage spots…. Thanks guys!

You probably had an air bubble in your coolant path, but normally the high temps show up well before now. This would also explain the fluid loss, as the bubble eventually made back to the radiator.
