Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'm here to help get your problem solved. Does it overheat right away or take awhile? Does it overheat both at highway speeds and at idle? Thanks.

These engines do have some head gasket problems. A good way to tell if head gasket is problem is to start engine when cold, if radiator hoses are hard within 2 minutes but coolant isn't hot that means head gasket is allowing pressure to build up. Let me know how it goes or if you have more questions, thanks.
