240 SX OVERHEATS

1995 Nissan 240Z • 4 cylinder 2WD Automatic • 102,000 miles

1995 Nissan 240 SX mileage: 102,000. I noticed my water temperature gauge was getting too high so I figured I should put anti-freeze in the radiator and that plastic jug next to it to cool it down some. After doing that, the same day (I let the car cool down while I was at work for eight hours) it still shows the gauge way up there in the red after just a few minutes of driving. The gauge isn’t broken because it does fluctuate from hot to really hot. What else could it be? Thanks in advance!

First thing to check or replace would be the thermostat. Next would be the radiator. You can buy a brand new radiator online and install it very easily.
