Various possibilities including thermostat, low coolant, weak coolant, cylinder head gasket, cylinder head. mine overheated, I needed a new headgasket. FOund out it was because I didn't have any coolant in it. The warning signs are your engine sign will start to turn over to overheating. You should also check to make sure your fan is working. Don't forget the leaking heater core. It will drain the fluid out the firewall as you drive and the next thing you know, you are out of fluid and overheating and can't find a leak! The plastic core connectors to the heater hoses commonly crack and leak. The replacement cores have aluminum connectors! Darn cheap plastic!!
