Check to see if your radiator fans are working. If not, you may need to replace the relay or fan. If the radiator fan comes on when you turn on the AC, but not when the engine gets hot, you could have a bad coolant temperature sensor. It also might be just a bad radiator cap that isn't holding pressure.
