Your thermostat is bad. It should be located on the engine block under where the top radiater hose attaches to engine block.

Why is my 06 ford f250 6.0 overheating at low speeds?

at low speed, there is less airflow through the radiator. This could mean the fins are blocked or the radiator needs cleaning internally. It could also mean the fan is not working correctly

Car is over heating

I take it that you care is looking like it is overheating when you are idling and the car is not hot. What you have is a blown head gasket or crack head. If you mean that it is overheating after a 5-10 minutes of idling then you have a frozen thermostat. If it is overheating after 20+ minutes of idling then you probably have a bad fan or water pump.

Car overheated one day the fine the next but no

your heat is not working becuase the coolant level is too low meaning your heater core is full of air. the reason your car overheated is because the water pump impeller splines are gone and you need to replace the water pump. it is driven by the timing belt so replace that too. and the tensioner. this is the number one cause of vw overheating, especially on a diesel. i have replaced about 50 water pumps on this engine because of this.
