I agree with Bill. Highway driving gives you good air flow. When you stop, however, or any driving below 35 mph, it heats up. I have had this same problem, and I coped with it by turning the ACC temperature setting to HI, fan on high, all windows and sunroof open. I also would turn off my engine at red lights and try to do a lot of coasting in gear. However, coasting at less than 35 mph seems to really not provide much cooling, and I would not see the temp decreasing when I did this. Probably the biggest help in town was to use the heater core as my radiator.
I replaced my fan and fan resistor with a new unit from eeuro, but I would think a salvage part would be fine, as this is an uncommon failure and the part should still be functional. I confirmed my fan was bad by hooking it directly to battery power.
