Overheating problem on e36

Hello,

Few months ago I have changed my thermostat as I had problems with my 1995 318is overheating while driving in stop and go traffic during hot and humid weather. I thought that changing the thermostat would fix the problem but the car started to overheat again few days ago, basically this only happens when the weather is hot and humid and I am driving in stop and go traffic. I have replaced the coolant when I changed the thermostat. Could the overheating problem be caused by faulty fan since when I am not driving in stop and go traffic the car does not overheat even if the weather is hot and humid? Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Mario

Yup, I would start with the clutch fan.
