SOURCE: Engine heating up
Is the radiator or overfill jug loosing water over time? Even a small amount under the minimum can cause quicker heatups. Also, start the car and check your hoses. I've seen hoses collapse and cause problems similar to that.
The ambient temperature could also be a factor. When you're cooling the water and trying to keep it below 212; a breeze of 40 degree air is a lot better for the cooling then 90 degree air.
One other thing as well. Being as it is an older car, you may want to try blowing our the radiator. Using an air compressor with an air nozzle. Just blow air through the back (in the engine compartment) through the radiator and out the front. This will clean out the radiator from bugs, dirt, and debris.
Try those ideas and see how it turns out.

Hi i would say have ago at rebuilding this yourself, Get a Haynes Manual for the car and that will tell you everything you need to know, The hardest part for you would be getting the timing correct and tightening the head bolts correctly (all in the manual tho) Look at it this way if it all goes wrong you wanted to get a second hand engine anyway, and you will learn alot in the process, Dont forget if you need any help along the way people are here to help, Good luck if you go for it, Steve

I think its much cheaper to overhaul the engine rather than replace it with anew one which is very expensive. The new engine may cost you around RM25K+ where is the cost of the overhaul might cost u around RM4K.Make sure the mechanic is professional enough to do the job.

have you tried the VCM (the computer) I have had 2 of these go bad already due to poor design. Water drips on to the unit and then corrodes after time (last one lasted only 2 1/2 years). Since this is the computer that runs the entire vehicle, you will notice many different symptoms.
hope this helps
