    Karlene,
    You should get this looked at very soon, you don't want to overheat the engine. Doing so can cause $$$! In the Arizona summer I imagine this can happen very quickly.
    Have the entire cooling system examined, and if one of the coolant hoses is bad, there's a good chance all of them need replacing.
    Be careful, don't let it overheat and get it looked at soon!
