The temp on my 03 reaches 240 when it is at idle. Its only 60*F outside this seems weird to me. Is it? If so where do I start looking?

may be a blown fan fuse or the fan's connector is unplug or relay is shot. you should also flush the coolant every two years and if it hasn't been done, go for it now. then you can check the fan plugs

Are you using water or coolant?

Flush your system and use distilled water with some capfuls of Redline water wetter. You're temps will never go up again...

To flush coolant there are 2 drain bolts. One on the cylinder head; bolt is located in the middile of cyl #2 & 3 header pipes(this is a real bitch to get to). The other bolt is on the waterpump itself, the one on the bottom. Also dont forget to drain your resevoir. I always drain mine from the water pump and dont bother with that bitch bolt on the cyl head, good enough...
