I am driving 55. Then I have to stomp on it to pass. It Overheats automatically. I have to put it to neutral and it cools automatically. I can drive any speed and it does not over heat. Just as long as I don't step on it again.
Do you
have the same problem?

Make sure your fans work and then have pressure checked for a head gasket leak.

I didn't mean the pressure was good I meant have a pro pressure check for a head gasket leak. It may be putting compression into cooling system causing your problem. Or see if your bottom rad hose is sucking together when you stomp on it if it is replace it.
