Question about 2005 Mitsubishi Lancer
In addition to what the wiz has said it can also be cause by a faulty water pump (usually mounted on the front of the engine & can be easiliy found by looking for the pullies & belts driven by the engine). Water pump faults can include a faulty or loose pully for the pump ie broken belt, or too much "play" in the belt pully assembly, a leaking water pump, blown gaskets/seals. In short anything stopping or restricting the flow of coolant from your radiator to the engine block is going to cause over heating so also be aware of dodgy radiators & blocked or damaged lines ect. You should be able to easily trace the hoses going from your radiator, engine & pump as this is the path water takes to cool the engine.
Enjoy & good luck!
