2000 Chevy Cavalier running HOT!
Replaced thermostat and fan motor.
Car cools while driving. No coolant
leaking. Jug is full. I have to turn the
car off in traffic and at stop lights.
Only gets hot while idling. I'm
thinking water pump or bad head
gasket.

1 Answer

Best guys are @ Les Schwab. Probably a bad connection, could be head gasket or a simple problem to fix like a water pump. That should solve the problem.
