If you haven't recently, drain and flush the radiator and replace the thermostat. Use a 50/50 mixture of coolant and DO NOT use tap water if you are using full strength coolant. Purchase a gallon or two of distilled water to use. Also check the radiator for obstructions on the outside. Hose any debris away. You may also want to check to see if the fan clutch, if equipped, is operating properly.
