Check Fans, turn on a/c and see if the fan or fans come on while vehicle is running. If they come on then that is not your problem. Check temperature with infrared thermometer at thermostat housing and at lower radiator hose. If both readings are near the same temp possible Thermostat problem. Do a block test or compression test to make sure a blown head gasket does not exist or cracked cylinder head or engine block. The the hoses have pressure squeeze them should be firm at operating temperature. Is your coolant full. Does it boil back out of the reservoir if so possible thermostat or head gasket problem. If the coolant was changed recently system may need bled. May have partially plugged Radiator. Flush maybe.
