Question about 2005 Nissan Altima
When driving my 2005 Nissan Altima and I brake then accelerate from the stop the temperature level starts to rise and then will come back down once I establish the speed I'm driving.
Sounds like your thermostat may be stuck shut, blocking the flow of coolant through your engine block. it cools down again because of the cool air coming through the rad.

This could be something as simple as low coolant (1/2 gallon), or a faulty temperature sensor. Bring it in to a repair shop for an inspection of the cooling system.

Change thermostat. Make sure coolant system is not gunky, otherwise flush it. Use fresh 50/50 coolant.
If everything is good and you by slight chance are still experiencing this problem, then you may need to have temp sensor replaced.
