Hello JACUSTOMER, how fast will the engine overheat? Will it run fine and cool at higher speeds?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
Yes, It run well until you slow down for traffic lights

Okay. You need to see if the engine cooling fans are coming on when the engine gets hot. If not then you either have bad fans or a circuit problem.
