What have you done to correct the overheat? Cleaned the radiator and cooling fines and screen ? Is fan belt tight? Has it ran hot in the past or has been ok? Does it get hot and loose coolant? Have you checked with a thermometer to be sure gage is accurate?

Cleaned radiator and condensers. belt is tight, ran hot this year only. Yes it loses coolant when hot. No, have not checked gauge with thermometer. When I turn off the A/C, the engine cools down to operating temp.

A/C can be low on refrigerant , which causes it to over heat, the extra heat from the condenser overheats the radiator, which is behind it. But it can also be caused by fan not moving enough air.
