You can check the fuse, that's always the easiest thing to do first. If the fuse is good and the fan is not working, it's probably a bad temperature sensor. Those are easy to replace, they just screw into the radiator, usually on the bottom.

Good Luck!

Our 2000 Ford Expedition only puts out heat after being driven a mile or two even if it has been idling for a long period

when idiling in the winter it doesnt get hot enough until you raise rpms, that gets the motor hot enough to open thermostat so water starts circulating throughout the whole system.

It is running hot win it is idiling for more than 15 min

Was it low on coolant recently? A lot of the newer cars have to have the cooling system bled to get air locks out. If it is getting hot when it is full, I would guess you have a blown head gasket. Also make sure the cooling fan is running when is starts to get hot. Maybe your fan is burnt out, bad fuse, or temperature sensor is bad.

Overheats. runs fine when idiling.holding the fan off, and a/c on still cant make it overheat but once driving for 5 mins starts to overheat. replaced thermostat, water pump looks to be fine. cleaned rad....

Water pump. The impeller will slip on the shaft. As you said runs fine at idle, but when you run it harder the impeller doesn't spin fast enough (slips). Causing it to over heat. replaced to many for this problem. Also The pumps that have the metal impellers will be tight when cold, don't let this fool you. when they heat up they slip.

Car oveheats when in stop and go traffic or going

All fan comes on that means all temp sensors as well as circuitry are working. The culprit is that the engine has poor coolant circulation to cause this problem. When you on the freeway the air help to cool the engine, but not in a case of stop and go. There are 3 things can cause this problem: a bad thermostat, a bad water pump or a bad radiator. These 3 things can be all together or just only one of them. A radiator has all vertical small tubes inside to carry the coolant passing through and dissipating heat through fins outside. When it gets clogged up, coolant becomes stagnant hence heat is not dissipated causing over heat. The same thing happens when water pump is not turning to propel the coolant in the loop. If a brand new radiator was installed last year then focus on the water pump. If a rebuilt one was installed then it is questionable. Don't ever use a rebuilt one, it is saving only the part but cost a bundle for later labor and headaches. Good luck checking the 3 things to find out a root cause.

2000 grand am overheats when the car is idle when

If you have A/C, turn it on. The fan(s) should come on immediately. If nothing happens, check that the fan(s) turn freely by hand and don't make any noise (from a bad bearing). Also check the fan relay and fuse. If the computer has a problem, it should show that it has one when a scanner is hooked up to it. The temperature sensor sends a signal to the computer and the computer tells the relay to turn on the fan(s).
