Question about 2000 Toyota Camry
As long as my camry is moving, it doesn't overheat, but when i'm in stand still traffic or etc, it overrheats.
Have you checked that your cooling fan is cutting in as it should, As you drive the air flow will cool the engine but over heat when stationary. This could be a problem with either the fan or the fan switch. Also it could be a sign of the water pump beginning to fail.
There should be a small pipe returning to the top of the coolant bottle as you rev the engine you should see a flow of water through this pipe that will a least indicate that the water pump is creating a flow.
Hope it helps.

Is the engine cooling fan running?, suspect that is the problem, have the fan motor and control circuits tested.
