Here are 8 reasons a vehicle over heats. coolant level is low, you have a leak in cooling system, the cooling system may have trapped air inside, the radiator cooling fan is not working, radiator core has become plugged, bad thermostat, or bad water pump, or Your radiator cap needs to be replaced. Good-Day! this is mostly all problems with over heating. if it is a bad head gasket, you will see white smoke from tail pipe. thats because coolant is entering cylinders. as for the radiator cap have a parts store pressure test the cooling system, if they do it.

Check the lower radiator hose to see if it has gone "soft" Check when the engine is cool and stopped, grasping the hose and giving it a squeeze, you should feel the presence of a "spring" in the hose. That should be there to prevent the hose from collapsing as the water pump draws coolant through it. Without the spring, the draw created by the pump intake, and the resulting venturi effect will collapse the hose, cutting off the flow.
If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!

I would go with slowcalafl. It is either air, or a cracked head bad head gasket. Remove the radiator cap when cool. Start up the car and watch for bubble emerging from the coolant. If it continues to bubble, you have a bad head or head gasket. If not, look for improper timing as another possibility.

There may be an obstruction in one of the hoses, there may be an air pocket in the system somewhere.
Are you sure there is actually an overheating going on? Maybe it's a bad temperature sensor or temperature gauge stepper motor.
