Hi Margie.

Lets see if we can find what is causing you this problem.

Change all the main elements that would cause you the overheating.

But was the ventilators checked ,when the engine get to normal operating temp do the fans switch ON and off with temp change.

If not then this could well be your problem.

If they do then i suggest you have a CO2 block and head leak test done ,this will confirm a bad head gasket .

These are the two options that are now possible tol be your problem .i hope its the cooling fans that are defective otherwise you will have to have the headgasket repair done .

For further assistance with this issue please get back to me with the reply box below .
