Hi guys, im new to this forum, this is my first post. Ok last year my car over heated WHILE driving, I then did a whole timing belt upgrade, including water pump thermo, everything. It fixed the accute overheating problem, now it over heats while im stopped in traffic or red lights, only after ive been driving for a super long time. Once I start to drive and turn the heat on, my car cools down to nomal temps. Anyone got an idea of what the problem could be? and also know of a honest vw shop? Still in need of a great mechanic in the chicago area, preferably northside. Thanks in advance!

Sounds like a cooling fan not working right.
