There are allot of things that could cause a car to over heat, Bad radiator cap, the system has air it in, the system is short on anti- freeze, bad pump. bad thermostat, fans not coming on, fan sensor not working. Radiator needs to be cleaned and cored.

Mine is too! I replaced so many things already! The water pump, the thermostat, the radiator, the fan, and the fan relay but the relay keeps burning up? Any suggestions?
