Cooling Problem

I have a 2006 MCS with a manual transmission. I have had the car since mid November 2012. It has almost 78K miles on it. I have experienced an intermittent problem twice. At slow speeds the temp gage would climb up until it was pegged high. Increasing engine speed would bring the temp down. I found the coolant was about a quart or so low so I topped it off with the proper coolant for the MINI. Several weeks later it occurred again. Again the coolant was low so I topped it off. I have not noticed any leaks. I had the oil changed at the dealer where I purchased the car just prior to the latest episode and they found no leaks as well. What should I be looking for? Does anyone have an idea what the problem might be?

THANKS

At a guess it sounds like your electric fan isnt working..........make sure that the water system hasn't any air in it as well

I've just had this type of problem with my 52plate Cooper S about 2 weeks ago , After being mis-diagnosed 3 times i sent it to an auto electrician and it turned out to be the power steering pump fan, it had seized so the radiator fan wouldn't kick in and cool the engine . Mine came to a total of 280 + 50 for the auto electrician .
Hope this helps abit.
