I would check the coolant level but I think your car needs a complete cooling system service - hoses, flush, thermostat etc.

I just had a new thermostat pur in as well as a flush :(

Check the coolant level when the car is cool. Do you have white exhaust smoke?

Coolant full and no smoke. Maybe the water pump?
