My Hyundai Getz 1.6 cdx overheats when it stops at a crossroads
Or when stationary in a traffic queue.I have noticed that the radiator fan is not functional when the car starts to overheat.Has anyone had a similar problem? I dont think there is anything wrong with the fan assembly. Thanks

Your mechanic is not necessarily wrong. What he changed were the easily changed items to stop overheating-things recommended by all mechanics. Since that didn't help, you will have to dig further. What you need to do now is have the engine checked for a head gasket failure.
You may have low coolant due to a leaking cooling system. Check the fluid level. You may have a faulty radiator fan. The fan should kick on an run from electric current when you are in traffic and if it does not then the thermostat for the fan may be bad. You may also have a blocked radiator so water may not be circulating properly. I don't know of the gauges, but the expense would be pricey due to the labor to remove the portion of the dash to get the instrument cluster out and the repair to the cluster would probably run around $150 if it is an average electronics failure.
since the water pump was replaced, make sure you don't have an air pocket in the cooling system. flush your cooling system again. remember, if all was well before the tune up/preventative maintanance, it's within those items that were replaced. I don't think it's the condensor, thats a/c related, but the radiator and water pump, well those can cause overheating problems. when the system overheats, you will feel it in the ac.
