Hi, my name is ***** ***** you for your question.
Start with the basics,, check belt tension on all belts,,clean the outside of radiator,,make sure fan is okay and no excessive play,,you should hear it when it kicks on,, if you don't hear it its free wheeling and needs replaced.
If that is all good next step would be to replace thermostat.
Any questions or problems let me know I'm happy to assist.
