I think that either your radiator is plugged up, not allowing your coolant to use the full volume and/ or surface area of the radiator. Also, your thermostat might be stuck closed not letting your coolant to circulate through the block. And last thing, make sure that your electric cooling fan comes on when the car gets above 180 degrees. My answer is to replace your thermostat, flush and clean your cooling system (by a professional radiator shop)with a strong cleaner, and make sure there are no leaks in your cooling system, your car has a closed system, a leak will make it over heat too.
