May need a radiator flush or the cooling system needs to be purged from the air pockets. The bottom radiator hose is suppose to be cooler than the top radiator hose. Also you should get a kit to check for exhaust gasses in the cooling system, that would indicate a bad head gasket. Here is how to purge the cooling system... www.youtube.com/watch?v=xeTgmdRkQtY
