You might have a bad thermostat, you might just be low on coolant, and check the actual radiator, not the plastic overflow tank. If both of those are fine, you could have a restricted heater core, you can check that by touching both heater core hoses, if one hose is hot and the other isn't, then it's clogged.

You need to put a higher temperature thermostat in. Try a 200 degree thermostat and make sure that you have a full radiator. Also you could dilute your antifreeze a little more than 50/50 .
I would also try a 70/ 30 mix. Hope this helps.

no im a mechanic it sounds like that you have an air lock in the cooling system .i am familiar with ford freda and bongo and the design where the engine is is a bit far from the radiator ,so the problem with air locks magnifies.really the solution is just drain the water and refill it slowly while you are pressing and releasing,just repeat the action on the top radiator hose to get rid of any air trapping within the system,it's as simple as that really.you want it to have just water and no air as this will cause a blockage.

Use only your key to unlock, open the door, then lock and unlock the door again, then get in and start the car. This will reset it. Also, you can disconnect the battery and turn on the light to make sure you drain all the power from the system then reconnect the battery. And you might want to check the battery on your remote.
