one of the things that could be casing your ovreheating problem is a stuck thermostat. The thermostat stays closed until the engine gets to a certaqin temperature and then opens up to cool the engine. if the thermostat fails to open no coolent gets to the engine therfore causing the engine to overheat. one way to tell if your thermostat is going out is your upper radiator hose where the themostat housing is will be stretched and feel kinda rubbery. hope this helps could also be that your water pump is going and or a broken water pump belt...but id go with the thermostat first.then take it from there.
