It could be many things. I would start by checking the coolant level and topping it off. If it is fine, I would then look for leaks and maybe look at the oil to make sure there is no mixing of oil and coolant which would indicate headgasket or a crack in the motor. If no leaks, you may want to then check the thermostat. If it is fine, the next step would be to test the fans to see if they are operational.
If you get that far and don't find anything, I would recommend sending it to a technician because it may be something difficult to diagnose. Goodluck.

Sever overheating issues with 2001 Dodge Dakota 4.5l extended cab pick up after 15 min of driving.

The only things you have left is to check the heater and make sure it is not plugged or else the temp. sw. is giving you a false reading. I am assuming you replaced the rad. and heater hoses.

I have a 99 ford expedition with heating problems. It will heat in the middle section for about 15 seconds then you can feel it go to cold air. We have changed the blend door actuator, thermostat, and...

Check if there is a vacumn powered valve in the heater hoses, if there is the vacumn hose may be faulty [ broken or crimped.] or the valve is faulty. good luck.

2007 Pontiac G6 GT radiator fan keeps running after engine is turned off. Runs for another 4-5 mins after engine is turned off.

Heat sensor keeps blowing air thru radiator until it cools, then cuts off. Some auto do this. If it bothers you let the engine idle a few min. after you drive it and then turn car off. When you drive your car and the engine is hot it heats up even more when you turn it off because the water has quit circulating. The fan will run til it cools. It's supposed to do that.

My problem is when I am driving the engine heats of and the car dies. It cools down after about 30 mins and starts again but keeps dying on me.

Replace the thermostat and check for leaks also if the antifreeze is old and has a dilluted concentration that can cause this too. You must also check to make sure the electric fan comes on after 10 minutes of running stand and watch to see if the fan comes on after 10-15 min. of runninng if not replace the fan relay switch or the fan temp.sensor.
