maybe a coolant thermostat that is faulty, a collapsed or perished hose..
It could also indicate cylinder head gasket/cylinder head problems.
Ten miles is about the correct distance for a car engine to reach normal operating temperature. If your temperature gauge continues to rise beyond normal ..ie. overheating .. you risk causing a lot of damage to your engine.
If you're not sure what to do or look for - get somebody to check it out for you
Check your ignition, battery cables, have your starter and alternator tested for defects, also it is recommended to flush and change your coolant as seasons change, during the summer, it's best to run water in the radiator instead of Anti-Freeze, and during the winter, run 50/50. You may also want to have your engine checked for compression problems, replace your thermostat, and radiator hoses, check your water pump, and heads for cracks or warps. I own a 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix SE.
If you see any antifreeze, you are losing it and it will be costly (or fatal) if you don't determine where it is coming from-until you find it, make certain you fill the overflow when the car is COLD to the cold fill line-do it everyday, until you can locate the leak.
