Why Does My Car Overheat When Idling?

Answer

If a car is overheating when it is stopped or idling the most common problem associated with this is the cooling fan. The whole purpose of the cooling fan is to improve the airflow while stopped or idling. This fan is controlled by sensors that regulate the temperature of the engine. Cars also have an air conditioner compressor which requires the fan to operate while the car is idling. If the fan isnâ€â&dbquo;¢t working properly this could also be the cause of the car idling when stopped.
