What is causing it to overheat when running idle?

Just had the thermostat replaced as well. It also has a high pitched winding sound when running as well.

If it has a cooling fan, check and see if it is working. If the fan is working then it could be your water pump. Check your reservor and see if the antifreeze is flowing, when the engine is warm. Do not open the radiator cap or you could get burnt.
