My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am a professional here at Just Answer/Pearl. I noticed that your question was not getting 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.

There are some common components or causes for this issue here.First if the thermostat isn't opening/operating properly this type of fault will occur here.I have had to replace a faulty thermostat for this issue before.

I would also check and make sure the radiator fins are not bent or damaged or any restrictions to air flow through the radiator due to debris build up.

I would also check and make sure the cooling fan for the engine/radiator is operating properly.

In some cases this can also be caused by a restriction in the coolant system.If you do replace or have the thermostat replaced I recommend a coolant flush at the same time to free up and remove any debris build up in the coolant system.

Thanks Pete
