Try to replace the thermostat in the engine and refill the system to see if the overheating is fixed. Also, make sure the cooling fans are coming on. If you would rather have this looked at before replacing any more parts, a certified technician from YourMechanic can come to your car’s location to diagnose the overheating issue and let you know what needs repair.
