I have a '04 nissan maxima. The engine overheats while idling only. When car is moving up to speed the temp goes back down to normal. Coolant level is good. Could it possibly be a bad thermostat or do you think its another problem?

Thanks for your help!

Check the cooling fan for operating.

Also, check the level, check the thermostat as well.

Turn on A/C to see if both fan works.
