Hey Linda==It just has to be checked out. Ir varies as to how hot it actually got and looking at it is the only way to tell. GoodluckJoe

Could be a bad thermostat or dirty rad or heater core which would be better than what you mentioned.Good luck.

Also check to see if radiator fan is running when the engine is hot. My cars fan had a bad connection at the fan motor. One of he prongs broke off.
