2007 Chevy Equinox
Car overheats when stopped/idling
Dual radiator fans work and do turn on automatically.
[color=red] Heater blows cold air when idling
Things i’ve tried:
Replaced water pump
flushed cooling system
bled air out of cooling system
pressure tested to 15psi, stayed at pressure for 5 minutes.
Any ideas on what could be causing it? Thanks!

Then bleed the cooling system:
If it is a troublesome system you may need to vacuum fill the system:
