Worst case scenario my car is overheating. I'm the kind of person that rather would replace all parts and hoses also fans, which could lead to this problem again. Anything worth doing is worth doing right. Can you please send me a list of things that I would have to replace, that way I could make a decision to keep her or junk her?

Hello,
An engine can overheat due to any number of reasons.
It could be due to a stuck closed thermostat, inoperative cooling fans, faulty water pump, bad radiator, contaminated coolant or having clog in the cooling system and of course being low on coolant.
Best course of action would be to take a look at that possible reasons and take appropriate action.

Here is a helpful guide

Depending on your finding you might have to replace the thermostat, water pump, radiator, flush the cooling system, cooling fan or even temperature sensor that is not allowing the fan to come on.

Let me know of any questions.
Thank you.
