Old messages but . . .
You might want to check your coolant for bubbles; you could have a blown headgasket between the engine's water jacket and a cylinder.  If the gasket fails this way, it will force hot gases into the coolant path that will cause this rapid and intense heating.  The gasket does not have to be failed much to cause this and the early stages won't cause a cylinder to misfire but on cooling, the coolant can enter the cylinder and produce misfires for a few seconds when first started and this can show up as a fouling of one plug which can even show signs of rust if examined. 
Also, check your oil dipstick for the color of your oil; it shouldn't look like Jergens lotion. At the same time, look into the coolant bottle to see what it looks like since a failed gasket can also cause oil to leak into the coolant.

For the Jeep owner; there were three different engines for that vehicle and you didn't tell us which you have so that could be why you received no answer. They are all located in different areas.

2002 lincoln. Ls v8.. burning smell?? Tried to run hot after 15min drive at a red light but when i took off went back to half way? Keeps running hot??

Engine is too hot which is burning oil and road dirt off the engine. Sounds like a bad thermostat or a water pump problem. The radiator may be partially blocked too.

Gets hot going up hill cools down on level on hiway

not enough information but here is a possible answer
If you have a viscous fan hub ( fan clutch ) , then replace it
the problem that is indicated is that the fan is not drawing enough air through the radiator when using higher rpms up hill with extra load but on the high way the road speed is sufficient to pass enough air through the radiator to cool it down
another check is to check the temp when sitting at lights or in slow moving traffic

I have a 1994 Ford Escort LXE- the car runs hot when idling or driving at slower speed. It appears it has overheated from looks of overflow. When driving it will remain at normal, with defrost on and fan...

Check and make sure that your fan on the radiator is coming on.when it gets hot do you hear anything like a fan running if not its probably a coolant fan relay. If your ac is working when it starts to heat up turn it on and you sould hear a fan runing and it sould start cooling down if you dont then check fuses .I wish I was close to you and I could check it out for you and save you some money .I have 3 in college and 1 just starting to drive .Been mec. for 35 years .If you want to email me and I will try to tell you what to do Im in N.C. if I can help.Yes and I have 3 daughters too!!!

What's the normal operating temperature for a 2.4 petrol? The 99 A4 I have runs at 90c and gets hotter in slow traffic. Fine on open road.

Could have a semi blocked radiator , Might pay to get it flushed.
Also check that the Fan/s sre coming on.
Hope this helps

the only problem that vehicle has is with cooling fans is relay/module or electrical harness to module that burns up located behind and under right front headlamp assy must remove headlamp to access relay/module that is what powers up fan motor module assy.
