Could be bad water pump, thermostat going bad, clog in system caused by a collapsed hose, excessive air in cooling system, clogged up radiator. I would expect there to be lights flashing on your dashboard with codes associated with them. Start by going to an auto parts store where they will read codes, probably free. Then plan repairs. This might be a minor fix that could become a MAJOR one if not addressed now.

Wow! I never would of thought of all those things going wrong. Someone said just add coolant. Thank you so much, I will go to an auto part store now.
