    Overheating problem could be anything related to cooling system, even if the thermostat is not the prob replace it anyways because of the repeated overheating. Could have low coolant, coolant flow, fan clutch, thermostat, water pump probs, etc. Have inspected at a qualified shop and go from there. Or you can do what some do and throw parts at it and see what sticks. Good luck.
