There maybe a blockage in the cooling system that runs through the engine. Try flushing cooling system with a good Super cooling system flush it will circulate through the engine block and clean entire cooling system. No promises but its worth a try.

Have you checked to see if radiator fan is working?

Yes

you can have an air bubble in the system aka vapor lock...
