Engine Cooling problem
2003 Volkswagen Passat 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 91675 miles

I just purchased this car yesterday and on my way home it overheated. The strange thing is as soon as I stop the car it cools down and will not overheat as long as I don't exceed 30mph. If the car is hot and I stop it immediately cools down. Can you give me some advice to what is wrong or could be wrong before I spend a great deal of money at the shop?

Thank you!
