Am really hoping someone can help save this subaru

1998 Subaru Legacy 2.0

Superbly looked after and a beautiful car, however:

After around 15 minutes of driving (everytime) the gauge goes from normal temperature to overheating and the system gets extremely hot!

Wait for it to cool down, then it's okay to drive for a while again

It is NOT losing any water from the cooling system

Sometimes it goes past the 'normal' then goes back down

Interior fans work perfectly

Water colour etc in coolant tank is fine

The fan kicks in, but it can't cool it down!

Any marginally perished pipes have been replaced

What would your suggestions be?:confused:

Any help is VERY appreciated
