thermostat stuck closed or fan failed. Engines run at 180+ degrees, even if it's 110 outside that's still cooler than the engine. If it got that hot it may have damaged something else.

Well the 7mge engine which is that car is notorious for blowing the head gasket, so if it got that hot the head gasket is most likely popped and 9 times out of 10 the head is gonna be warped on that particular engine
