Why does my car overheat at idle?

One possible reason your car might overheat at idle is that the cooling fans are not functioning properly. The cooling fans help to circulate air around the radiator and keep the engine cool. If the fans are not working, the engine will overheat. Another possibility is that there is a problem with the thermostat. The thermostat regulates the flow of coolant through the engine. If it is stuck in a closed position, the engine will overheat. Finally, there could be a leak in the cooling system. A leak will allow coolant to escape and will not allow the system to function properly. If your car is overheating at idle, it is important to have it checked by a mechanic to determine the cause of the problem.
