Make sure your electric Engine cooling Fan working? If not; check for a bad fuse located in the engine compartment(Drivers side); not the fuse box located under dash. This is very common in this particular car (especially the V8 fully loaded). If the fuse is O.K;check to see if your fan is seized up.
Also; check to see if water is flowing freely through your heater core. These two problems are often overlooked.
Note: Do not assume the fan is broke when first starting the vehicle. Do not try spinning the fan by hand while the engine is running. The fan may not operate until the car is running at normal Temp. It may come on unexpectantly, and quickly! Remember; you will need your fingers to make repairs!
