I would suggest you check one of two things, the thermostat is old and stuck. If the thermostat doesn't open when it should, your engine will continue to get warmer, then hot. That's the cheap fix. Equally as possible is that you have a blown gasket, could be head gasket. If the head gasket blows, the engine coolant leaks into the oil channels and the engine gets hot and overheats. Do you smell a sweet smell when your car gets hot? Check the oil levels, is the oil level higher than it should be and does the oil have the color and resemblance of chocolate milk? An engine overheating is a serious symptom and should be checked by a mechanic or someone qualified. If you ignore it, you will ruin your engine. Best of luck
