Hot & muggy inside car? Strange. Leaky heater core (but no fluid loss)? Failing cats?

What's getting hot inside the car? Floorboards? Back of the seat area. Air vents?

Clean out your front air intakes and radiators. May need to remove your bumper cover for best access.

Temp gauge reading a little to the left or a little to the right of 12oclock is within "normal".
