Car tends to run hot when I drive thru city steers due to stop n go traffic but has no problems on freeway.

Always has slight electrical problem.

First - what is the slight electrical problem, refer to? Are the radiator fans engaging (coming on) during the traffic situations to cool the engine? Check the coolant mixture for the proper 50/50 mix of water to anti-freeze.
Need more information about the problem you are having - especially the electrical issue.
