Hi There!

Thanks for Choosing Just Answer.

I would make sure the fans are coming on when the vehicle is hot. I would also think about replacing the thermostat in the vehicle. A thermostat that is sticking shut could cause overheating issues. The thermostat is the brain of the cooling system. It senses the temperature of the coolant and allows the fluid to exit from the engine to the radiator. This thermostat should be replaced every two years or what is recommended by the manufacturer.Other things that could cause overheating are low coolant, improper coolant mixture, clogged radiator, faulty water pump or a faulty radiator cap.
