Check your thermostat,may be sticking causeing this.

All so check your oil and make sure there is not any water in it,

Thanks No coolant in oil. Was kind of thinking about a sticky Tstat so replaced and also replaced the coolant cap. So far good, but the real test will be driving the car from when the engine and coolant system is 'cold'.
