Your fan maybe? Its supposed to start whenever the engine runs hot at idle.

Your electric radiator fan isnt working. At idle the fan is supposed to come on periodically to pull cool air through the radiator to cool the circulating coolant. The reason it cools down when you start moving is because your forcing your radiator to take on airflow simply because the vehicle is in motion. check for a blown fuse.. refer to owners manual to locate fuse box and identify which fuse to be inspected... if you need help go to a gas station or auto parts store.. good luck
