As the title say's, I changed my thermostat a few weeks back because the car was overheating while driving. Everything went well. I'm just a little boggled as to why now whenever i stop at a stop light the temp gauge next to the gas gauge goes up slowly and within maybe 1-2 minutes it'll hit the H on the scale.
Anyone know if maybe it's a faulty Thermostat maybe or a bigger issue within the motor.
Like i mentioned, before i changed the thermostat and the heater core hose, it was over heating even while driving but now only at stop lights. While driving it sits perfectly normal.
Maybe this'll be enough description to come up with an idea of what the issue may be.
If you guys have any idea would you be kind enough to throw those ideas out.
THanks in advance my friends.

I had the same issue. My fan was working, and I had just done a coolant flush. The problem was my radiator. The core was old and bugs and rocks had eaten away at it. I replaced the radiator and BAM. Problem fixed.
Take a look at your core. See if it looks tired.
FYI, the thermostat is designed to fail OPEN, not closed. If your car is over heating while moving, it's probably not the thermostat.
