I have a 2009 Flex. When the temp is over 90, while at a light, or idling, the temperature gauge goes up. Driving brings it back down. There's coolant in the tank, so it isn't low. We bought is a year ago and haven't had issues with the car other than this. I'm a little tight on budget, so I don't want to chase down a whole lot of troubleshooting. I was thinking of starting with a coolant flush. Any other thoughts?

Check to see if both cooling fans are running

When the temperature outside is below 90, yes. When I checked it Tuesday, it was fine in stop and go driving, got home, parked it, lifted the hood, no fan coming on and ever so slowly, the temperature crept up. I was thinking of starting with a coolant flush to see if maybe something is getting clogged when it is hot outside. I don't see any leaks or loss of coolant, only this temperature issue when it is hot outside.
