A couple of things. Simplist is to flush & refill the radiator. Collant level could be low. Mine was doing it mainly when stopped a lights or at idle speeds. If I reved the engine around 2,ooo RPM, it produced heat. Once I flushed and refilled the cooling system, problem went away. Good luck!

Ensure coolant system has been properly filled.
Carry out all air bleed operations as specified by the manufacturer- (don't forget to open the heater core supply valve).

A lot of people overlook the simple overflow tank cap. If this cap loses the psi pressure it requires to hold then it can make the engine run hot because it's losing pressure. Think about it like this, if you have ever had a radiator to leak, the water level could be good, but the temp gauge shows it overheats. This is because the system isn't holding the pressure. The cap cost about $7. I'm not saying this will fix the problem but it is overlooked and fixes the problem on a lot of over heating cars.

HAve you check for a bad water pump?.. sometimes even new thermostat are defective too.
Do you know if your car has a relieve valve to bleed the cooling system. If the system has air it will over heat at low RPM's. Sometimes even flushing the radiator wont firx a cooling system with air.
So make sure about these two things I mentioned.
Please dont forget to rate me.

Unfortunately, I do not think you will be able to use the flush kit on your car. There are two lines with very short hoses. The one you are looking for is only a few inches long. SORRY.
