That looks normal if you were in traffic. But you can check fuses. The minute you put A/C on a fan should start. This will at least tell you if one of your fans work. Then let it idle and wait to see if both fans come on at around 215-220. Coolant can get hotter than 212F without boiling.

Every minute spent angry is a happy minute lost for ever and ever!!!

I'm kinda nervous its pretty high still Idk what the smoke was from.. I was at a light with an integra floored it, but then 2 lights later there was smoke and coolant was at 212, but then there was no smoke after a 15 min drive at 55 going home..

Did you turn on your A/C to see if fan starts?
