Issue / Question:
My car is overheating. Changed the radiator fluid, still overheating. When I turn the heat on for about 30 seconds it drops back to normal and seems fine. I mainly do stop-and-go driving. Is it a thermostat or water pump going bad? Thank you.

Answer:
I suggest a flow test to see if there is restriction in the radiator and a fan clutch operation test.
