    It could be several things:

    -not enough coolant in system.
    -water pump defective.
    -radiator core blocked or grille restricted.
    -thermostat faulty.
    -electric coolant fan inoperative or blades broken (if your model has one)
    -radiator cap not maintaining proper pressure.

Car running hot when idle


The most common reason for running hot at idle is the radiator fan is not running or pulling enough air thru the radiator. If you have a fan for the engine and one for the ac, the engine fan may not be working.
The radiator fan should come on when the coolant reaches 220 degrees. The computer sends a signal to the fan relay.

I would start by checking the fluid to make sure it's at the proper level, Then check to see if the thermostat is opening like it should. If you have good flow and you get heat inside the car but the car still overheats I think I'd be checking for blown head gaskets and head warp.

I have a 2006 Hyandia Elantra,the heater does not get hot until the car is moving,but then the car starts running hot


Sounds like the cooling system is low on fluid. I would check that first.
Could also be a problem with the thermostat sticking.
