Hello and welcome to just answer and allowing me to assist you. To start diagnosing need more info . ARE THE COOLING FANS WORKING PROPERLY? DOES IT OVER HEAT IDLING-- HIGHWAY OR DOESN'T MATTER? How are the fins in the radiator are they loose or missing especially the lower ones, Is the shroud still in good shape around the fan? When you take the rad cap off is there any baubles in the coolant when running?Have you changed the rad cap as well?These are a few things to check to help you find what is causing the problem Hope this helps and if you require further assistance I'll be happy to do so.
