The cap to the expansion tank (or a radiator cap) may need to be replaced. These go bad and allow the temperature to slowly start rising. Or maybe your existing cap is loose---try tightening it. Radiator or water pump. Check your maintenance schedule and see if you are due for a water pump/ timing belt. If the car has over 100,000 miles, the radiator can't hurt. DO NOT USE TAP WATER IN YOUR COOLING SYSTEM!!!!!!!! pre mixed 50/50 coolant or dilute with distilled water. Tap water is full of minerals which will buildup in the fins. Thats' my first guess, I need more info otherwise. Try changing the thermostat.

replace o2 sensor behind cat.converter first, you probably do need a catalyst, the emission warranty for that is 8 years or 80,000 miles minimum and may be longer on some models so if you have less than 80,000 miles and the date car was originally purchased on is less than 8 years ago the dealer will replace it at no cost to you.
