Is the oil temp also running higher than normal? If normal oil temp then
maybe it is a false high water temp reading, although I have personally
never seen false highs - just false lows. I usually go by the oil temp as it
seems to be a more stable reading than the water temp.

How's your antifreeze protection? If it warms up at idle when no air is
blowing across the radiator, perhaps you are " slushing up" when driving.

good luck,
