Best Answer

The vehicle does not have any airflow across either the engine or the radiator to cool things down like occurs when driving, if at an idle. This, coupled with a diminished flow of coolant through the engine at idle speed creates undissipated heat.

The condenser fan is more likely to run when the car is idling. So if it NEVER comes on when idling you definitely have a problem. If the condenser is not cooled, then your compressor could get overloaded. It may be a problem with a relay that is preventing the fan from running - or some other issue.

Why does my 1995 impala SS run hotter when idling causing the Temperature needle to move close to the red but not overheat?

Engine is running slower at idle, therefore water pump is running slower and water is being circulated at a slower speed and there is no air flow through the grill to the radiator Try flushing the coolant and replacing the thermostat. This usually helps or solves the problem. If it doesnt then your radiator is prbably clogged and not properly dispersing fluid through it. You will most likely have to change the radiator. It is possibly the coolant temp sensor is not quite right. It could just be several things. Try the flusing first. Good luck.

There are two hoses that go to the heater core, when the coolant is flushed an air pocket forms preventing hot coolant from reaching heater core while at idle. Happened with all our police impalas. Tell the dealer to fix it.
