You have to check the basics. Is the cooling system full of coolant? Are there any air pockets (recent repairs performed?)? Does the cooling fan turn on when the engine is idling and warm? Can you verify thermostat operation - opening when desired? Is the water pump circulating the coolant through the engine as required? A qualified technician needs to address some of these questions.
