Engine Cooling problem V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 78,481 miles

Going down the road it will not overheat until I stop at a red light or at idle it will go past 210. I hear the radiator fan when I turn my A/C on but never at anytime else. What should I do?
Do you

Hello,

It sounds like your fan clutch has gone bad causing the fan to freewheel. Here is a video and guide to help you get the clutch fan replaced.

Thank you so much I checked the fan clutch and was loose on the shaft ready to fly off. All set with a new unit from Amazon for $67.00
