Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The other day i was driving home from work ,and
my suv started running hot. I popped the hood and
noticed steam was coming from the water outlet
housing, so i took it off and found that it was
cracked and so i replaced it. Now it still runs hot.Im
guessing when it got hot it cracked the water outlet
housing .What couldve made it get that hot this the
first time it ever ran hot.any suggestions within
about 10 minutes of driving it run hot but when just
idling it doesnt. I dont see any waterleaks around
water pump.

After idling about 30 min i was able to take water reservoir top off and it wasnt hot, but i dont have radiator top. When i first noticed it was running hot i would stop every 5 minutes and let it cool back down. But the last time i stop i took the top off and forgot it off i didnt run hot, and at first when i started my heater wouldnt work but after i left top off my heater started working

I just checked. I was just letting it run. The top hose is hot but the bottom hose thats going to thermostat is hot i had to add water while idling but checked under the car and didnt see no water dripping
