it could be your thermostat going out and/or your water pump. these cars have plastic pieces where there should be metal that being said the plastic bits could be worn out and not performing as they should. i've had to replace my entire cooling system due to worn out plastic pieces,i even had to replace the water pump.

Very good question two issues may resolve this change spark plugs and inlet manifold gaskets as they should always be replaced when changing plugs
