This could happen for certain reasons and you can just make a check list. First of all check to see if you have the proper amount of antifreeze in your radiator. Check to see if your radiator is free of any debris or obstacles that might be in the way of letting the air go through. Incorrect timing can be a factor to high engine temps too. Lastly, I would check the aux,fan switch. Your fan should be coming on automatically when it reaches a certain temperature, which is monitered by the sensor switch. When that is not working properly, it will cause high engine temps too. That switch should be located by the upper radiator hose that connects to the engine. Unplug and unscrew. New one should go in reverse order. Good luck!!!

It could, but I'd start by checking the timing. If it's off the car will overheat, and that's easy to adjust. Heater cores are a grade-A pain to replace because you have to take apart the dash to get to them.
