Odds are that you need a new water pump,if the impellers have degraded over time(they are made of cast iron and are now 12 years old) then the will not pump the volume of coolant that you need to properly cool your engine.

Car overheating, coolant in resevoir cold, radiator top hose boiling hot. overheating problem comes and goes. 1999 VW passat

Check that your electric radiator fan is working. When the car is hot and idling it should come on.

Replace your therostat. I had a Chevy Citation that the thermostat would start to open and then close instead of opening all the way.

the Radiator May be Getting Stopped up I Would Need To Be Rodded Out If So Or Could be Thermostat Not Opening Up All The Way I Would Check Therostat First Before Going The Route Of Pulling The Radiator
