Is your cooling/radiator fan running?

i had some front in damage and the fan shroud is broke and one of the fans dont work.so my a/c only works when its running..i was thinking that i know i need to get a new fan shroud and fan but..it just recently started overheating while idling so i wasnt sure if it was the same reason..and if it is i guess that means i need to find the parts cheap somewhere

After you change the shroud and fan if it still doesn't turn on then check the coolant temp sensor because they are also critical for proper fan operation.

Yes, the reason it is overheating at idle is due to no air flow over the radiator cooling the coolant. So when you drive down the road, air is passing over the radiator.
