Check to make sure there is no air in the cooling system,and make sure the cooling fans are working.The cooling fans should come on,on there own,and go off on there own,without the ac or defrost on,make sure they are off.

Hi, Carson. Have you check your radiator for blockage? Or the car's cylinderhead gasket has blown, which will put pressure in your water system which in turn overheats the engine.

I doubt that the water pump would be faulty:- go through this checklist first.
I assume motor tune or other mechanical condition is not causing the problem.
When engine running, ensure no engine combustion gas bubbles in coolant resevoir (if so, the head gasket is blown).
Check radiator cooling fans are operating ok (as required when car warms up) - if not check
2) relay operation,
3) heat sensor switch.
Check for collapsing (soft) coolant hose on suction side of waterpump when engine revs above idle.
Check the coolant pressure cap is serviceable & of correct rating,
Ensure cooling system is correctly filled, bleed off any airlocks as necessary,
Check radiator cooling core is not blocked internally or externally.

Hi, could be the head gasket, have a compression test done to determine pressures etc, with the engine running see if you can smell exhaust fumes coming out of the radiator filler, good luck.
