Ive been having the same problem, I already had a pressure test done
twice and no leaks were found... The last tech told me it might be a
water pump, or timing belt problem... Now I freak out everytime Im
stuck on traffic, because the temperature just starts to rise, so I
have to shut down the car until traffic stars to move... Cant wait to
get rid of this car!!

Are you sure that the cooling fan is switching on? The fan should only
cut in if the engine gets hot such as when you are stuck in a traffic..
If you have Air Con there will be two fans.

Have you checked the fuses in the engine compartment fuse box?

Fuses 6 and 29 are associated with the air con fan (30 Amp /Green)

Fuse 65 (30 Amps/Green) is for the engine cooling Fan
