An engine will run hot if oil pressure is an issue (engine oil both lubricates and cools the engine). Check the engine oil level. Don't drive the car until the engine oil and filter have been changed and the oil pressure is actually verified using a known good mechanical gauge.at idle hot it should be 9 to 13 psi, 30 to 36 psi at 2000 RPM.
