4 Answers

Check engine fan...your V6 might have two. If it runs at proper temperature at speed, only heats up when stopped that is probably the fan not coming on, fuse, temperature sending unit, fan motor bad. wire fallen off, hot or ground This image I could not find which fuse is for the fans but should be labeled on fuse box cover, click on image, But that is not the only possible culprit. Just one thing to check. next time you drive your car, when you get home, allow it to idle and listen for fan or open hood and watch to see if it comes on

If your fan is working check anti-freeze levels. Thermostat may be on it's way out as well.

Are you saying that you have replaced all these items and it is still over heating? Or is the problem solved?
