If all your hoses are good, you probably want to put a new thermostat in, and if that doesn't work, a water pump. While you are doing your water pump, go ahead and do a timing belt since you are in there anyway, it will save you a ton of labor over having them done seperately.

Check the fan clutch and see if its engaging ! Start the motor and let run a few minutes and turn vehicle off while observing the fan blades if it free wheels when the motor is turned off then its bad !
