There are allot of things that could cause a car to over heat, Bad radiator cap, the system has air it in, the system is short on anti- freeze, bad pump. bad thermostat, fans not coming on, fan sensor not working. Radiator needs to be cleaned and cored.

Mine is too! I replaced so many things already! The water pump, the thermostat, the radiator, the fan, and the fan relay but the relay keeps burning up? Any suggestions?

my 2005 lincoln ls recently ran hot pulled over let cool added antifreeze temp back to normal. Drove it for 3 hours and temp gauge back up again. Any suggestions please
