First of all, is the vehicle actually running hot or could you be getting a faulty reading from a temperature gauge? If it is truly running hot, inspect the cooling fan operation. This system has a two speed fan operation that should run on high when it is running at a higher temperature. A laser temperature gun is helpful in checking for even coolant flow. If all else proves to be fine, the water pump impellors may be an issue.
