1.Check coolant level. Check the overflow tank, do NOT remove the radiator cap when the engine is hot. Make sure the level in the coolant overflow tank is where it should be. There should be two lines going across the tank. One is COLD for when the engine is cold, and hasn't been running, one is HOT for when the engine has been running.

2.Your cooling system should be flushed once a year. You should also replace the antifreeze yearly. Antifreeze is not only there to keep the vehicle from overheating, it also provides lubrication for the water pump, and prevents rust scale buildup, and corrosion.

3.The thermostat may be sticking, and not opening properly.

4.The radiator may have it's cooling tubes in the radiator core, slightly plugged shut from scale deposits.

5.Electric fans that cool the radiator have quit.
A.Fan motor/s may be bad.
B.Coolant Temperature Sensor, (Thermistor), may be bad.

6.Water pump may be bad.

7.The Accessory belt may be broken.
