Hi, I'm Ron and I will be helping you today.Stand by for a moment while I prepare your answer.
As long as the fluid is full, it's okay to be water instead of coolant. You do need to check the thermostat, water pump for worn fins, blockage in the radiator and radiator cap. Any of these can cause overheating.
Yes it can, if the fins are worn out, it won't push the fluid fast enough.
