First of all did you hear your coolant fans come on at all ? If not Look into that first I believe that you have two fans on that Car so make sure both are not working to confirm that its a problem, Now if all that is ok I would look into your thermostat and make sure its ok and working, Now if thats ok You will want to do a compression check to make sure you don't have a Blown head Gasket. If it is a head gasket make sure whom ever does the repair to make sure you have the Heads checked for cracks. I sure hope one of those solutions help you out. Good Luck And thanks for using Fix Ya bear001
