My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

This issue here can be due to either a restriction in the cooling system either in the radiator or the engine block and a coolant flush may be needed to correct this here or a fault with a leaking cylinder head gasket allowing exhaust heat and gasses to enter the cooling system.I would have a block test done to see if this is a leaking cylinder head gasket needing replaced.If this is checked and found o.k. then I would have the coolant system flushed and a new thermostat installed.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation.
