Maybe the Water Pump needs replacement. You could probably tell by looking into radiator, cap off, then starting and running engine.

If water pump is okay, next thing to check is oil pressure. Is the oil circulating? Make sure the oil filter is not old and clogged.

Is the fan belt tight? I agree with other fellow who says to watch and see if it cycles on/off. But KEEP YOUR FINGERS AWAY while it is off.

have you checked to make sure your cooling fans are turning on and off at times? = bad sensor or fan motors

Have you checked your radiator overflow tank for oil in the coolant? = head gasket is blown

Have you looked at the radiator seams on the sides to see if you have a coolant leak?

Have you touched the top half and lower half and compared if one is cold and the other is hot??? = could have a clogged radiator...

how many miles on the car??? impellor on water pump could be worn and or gone completely and not pumping water...

good luck
