You would have to start with checking the coolant level. If it is low, you would have to pressure test it to find out where it is leaking. If it is not low you could either have a circulation or air flow (cooling fan) issue. Cooling systems are pressurized, hot, and dangerous. It would be best to get your car serviced by trained professionals, to inspect your car’s overheating issue.
