SOURCE: Overheating and heater not work
there is a valve on the water pump and one on the thermostat housing open those up one at a time until you get a little bit of antifreeze come out then tighten them back up. All you will be doing is bleeding the air out of the cooling system. my car was doing the same thing after I changed my thermostat.

It could be engine overheating, once you are turning the defroster on you are acutally turning on the compressor which is usually used for AC. If the engine has a drain it will over heat a bit which sounds like what you are experiencing. Check to make sure your thermostat is not sticking and staying closed causing the temperature change. Did they change the thermostat when they did the water pump? If they didn't I would suggest you do that sooner than later since you have 123K miles on the car. Most likely this will fix your problem.

SOURCE: Temperature Gauge Always On Cold
As long as your gauge is still moving up, there's no real problem. You have heat coming from the heater. It's only a problem if it's getting too hot. What's going on is that you don't let the vehicle run long enough, and it's so cold outside that the engine stays cold. It raises in temp when your stopped because there's no airflow through the radiator. The thermostat just heats up the engine block, and won't change the reading on the gauge. When this goes bad your car will overheat in just a few miles.
