Does it warm up after some driving? Does it stay warm with the heat on once up to temp? My thermostat was sticking at it wouldnt warm up form ideling at all either, and it wouldnt hold temperature with the heater on. You may need a new thermostat.

Dave said it right, they don't build a lot of heat at a idle.
