This could be due to your o2 sensor not giving a proper reading and offsetting the air/fuel mixture causing a low idle. Most vehicle have a loop setting so when the vehicle starts up it will run the air/fuel mixture at factory setting then once the temp senor heats up the o2 sensor will kick in and change the air/fuel mixture. You could also have an exhaust leak before your o2 sensor.

My guess is that your electric fan is NOT operating at all. Under normal conditions, just going down the highway, your cooling system will function just fine without a fan running. The air flow through the radiator is adequate to keep things cool. However, when you stop, you quickly get into an "overheat" situation. Actually, you should be able to hear your fan begin operating when your engine temperature starts climbing or your air conditioner requires the fan to do its thing. Note: If you've ever severely overheated your engine, your problems may be worse than just a fan not running, but you really do need to confirm whether your fan is operating correctly, or not. Another note: I had a vehicle with a tendency to overheat when stopped. It turned out to be a faulty (leaking) pressure cap on the cooling system.

Suburban overheating and air conditioner blowing hot


If you have a viscous fan hub have it replaced as it is not working. The problem you have is that the engine is not driving the fan to draw air through the radiator when idling so the engine overheats . When moving the air flow from driving cools the radiator and so the temp goes back down. If you have electric fans have the codes read to find the fault or check why the electric fans are not working.

Car over-heats and heats blows cold air


It sounds like the radiator is low on coolant.
You could also have air pockets in the cooling system if the system is not full of liquid.

I don't know if you did this already, but, you didn't mention a new air filter. A dirty air filter prevents the engine from getting the proper mix between air and fuel that it needs to run smoothly. Very often a new air filter resolves many of the issues you're having.

I hope this helps you.

Overheating Engine


your low on coolant. if you just worked on cooling system i.e. replaced hoses or water pump there is a air bubble trapped in it. You need to burp the air out at cap or stat or both. water pump, can't pump air so when you drive the coolant moves away from pump. IF it over heats while idling not moving you prob. have a bad fan. Think they are electric on this car.
