Question about 2006 Fiat X1/9
This sounds like the problem could become very serious and engine damage may eventually occur . I am not a mechanic but had similar problems with my Fiat Uno a few days ago (eventually the head gasket blew) and the same scenario with the Nissan Sentra. First check the following: Does the temperature rise more than the normal mark under normal operating conditions? Is the radiator cap in order? When checking the oil dipstick is there any signs of water and oil mixing together? Lastly is there excessive steam coming from the exhaust system? If so, you could be looking at a failed head gasket. Hopefully this is not the case and there is only an airlock in the cooling system thus being solved by checking and fulling and topping up the radiator itself (if possible) with a mixture of water & antifreese whilst the vehicle is idling - and not like i did on the Sentra - by constantly filling up the coolant reservoir and the water "blows" past the cap ......hope this helps.
