I would do the following, flush the entire cooling system and flush it at least two times with a good flushing product. I would change the cap and thermostat. give the radiator face a good cleaning and make sure they are clean. Make sure you bleed the system of air and refill with a 50/50 mixture. Start the car and bring it up to temp and make sure the cooling fans are coming on at temp.
