Check coolant level and have system pressure checked for a n internal leak. Also make sure your electric fans are coming on

Then it may have a fan clutch so check that it should lock up when it gets hot. If you have one when engine gets hot it should be very hard to turn or not at all. If it does it's probably bad. Also check for cold spots in radiator if you feel any the rad is bad. It shold be the same temp all across. Of course do this with the engine off.
