This sounds like a failure with the cooling system circuit. Check the operation of the engine cooling fan at normal operating temperature to be sure the fan is operating properly. If the fan is not coming on properly check the Cooling Fan relay in the fuse/relay box.
You will also need to check the coolant level in the radiator to be sure the level is correct.
