Question, does the car primarily overheat in traffic? If yes, check your fan first, is it running? If no, turn on the A/C, if it runs, then change the electric temp sensors that tell the fan to turn on. (A/C overrides the fan on.)There's 2 of them on the drivers side of the block. You prob need to replace the one with the 2 wires going to it. Have the new one wrapped with teflon tape and ready to go when you pull the old one out. As soon as you pull the thermostat (kinda looks like a short sparkplug) coolant will gush out, so stick a finger over the hole.
