SOURCE: radiator cool, engine temp = 140
sounds like your radiator is clogged, it will bring problems to you soon, you need to flush it really good, i dont think you need to replace it but it sounds like a typical clogged radiator, have it flushed, it you cant ur gonna need to replace it soon, if you keep running that car it might lead you to a temp problem while runing and u might end up hurting your engine...
u also need to check if your thermostat is working properly. go on google and look for the procedure, ur gonna have to take it off and do a test with hot water and a thermometer and see if its working properly.
hope this helps.

The hot running engine may be the thermostat or blocked rad......sometimes rad cap.
If running hot only at low speed....it may be perhaps the rad fan is not coming on.
On the hot right side heater air hot and left air cold....if you do have dual zone controls..... it is a 99% chance your actuator for one side is bad.
Open the glove compartment....all the way....you may have to bend the tabs in a bit or remove the screws from the bottom....look in and to the left....on the heater assembly you will see the 2 controls on the top of the air duct work.
The right side (passenger side ) is usually on the side to the rear of the car.
Buy the replacement for whatever side is not responding with heat and cold as you select on the heater controls.

There is a blockage or leak in your cooling system. That may come in a few different forms:
Incorrectly installed thermostat
Water pump not functioning - you may see water dripping from the pump or a stain from the hole under the water pump.
Severely coroded hoses/coolant passages - if the fluid is brown and the inside of the radiator rusty
External leak - you would see fluid on the ground Internal leak - you would see steam/white smoke from the tail pipe or water in the oil (may look like chocolate milk or not), if the oil level is extremely high this would be a good indication
heater core bypassed
