You can try to determine whether or not your radiator is plugged. If the upper hose is hot and the radiator feels cold to the touch this may be the case.

Check your fan clutch.. you should not be able to spin the fan easily if the clutch is good.. if it spins easily.. try replacing that

Hi, Sounds like you need a radiator flush. If the radiator is plugged up it can not cool the engine properly. Have it cleaned out and it should work fine. Good luck.

First check that the thermostat was installed correctly. It will not work properly if it was installed upside down. If this is the original radiator, it most likely is plugged up with deposits and corrosion. It needs to be replaced with a new one.

Overheating


If the cooling fans, water pump, radiator, and thermostat are all working properly and the engine is still overheating, I would take a look at something a little more simple, like a defective radiator cap. Try this inexpensive fix and see if it works. Sure hope this helps and good luck.
