One opption: could have the wrong thermostat,a higher temperature thermostat

17,245

Are the fans working? If so do a compression check and test for exhaust in coolant to rule out a head gasket failure. Also check for bad hoses, sticky thermostat, low coolant level, look or listen for a boiling sounds from coolant resevoir (exhaust in coolant in large amounts). Steam from tailpipe (Gasket('s) bad).
