Make sure your fans work, and check thermostat. Can do a compression test on all cylinders to see if head gaskets are leaking and can do a block test to see if you have exhaust in coolant test. Check to see if you have steam coming out tail pipe, and check for coolant in oil. The more its ran hot (only takes one time) the more chances are if not already the head gasket will blow which also means warped heads.
