Hello. If this only occurs at highway speeds, then you may have pressure build up in the cooling system. This is typically caused by a leaking head gasket. If there is a slight leak, then combustion pressure will build up in the cooling system and cause this to occur. A block test would need to be done to verify this. If you want to have this looked at before throwing on any more parts, consider YourMechanic, as a certified mechanic can come to your home or office to diagnose the overheating issue and verify what needs repair.
