If your willing to check a few things, maybe you can do this yourself.
Let the car set at idle, with the hood open, watch the gauge, when it gets up to about 220 degrees the fan should come on. Wait until it does, but not to the point that the gauge goes into the red zone. Did it come on? If the fan is not coming on, that is probably the reason for the overheating.
Is this 2.2 or a 2.4 motor.
