You need to check the cooling fan to see if it is turning on when the engine temperature increases? If it does not come on then you will need to have the system checked to see if cooling fan is getting power and the motor is bad or the fan motor is not getting power and need to have the system checked by a mechanic like one from YourMechanic. I recommend not running the engine until it is fixed or additional engine overheat damage may happen.
