Is the water leaking? Checked the thermostat? what else did you check? do your fans come on?

Tina, check your radiator hoses to make sure they are properly clamped and that the hoses are okay. If so, it is possible that your radiator is leaking. Any shop should be able to do a pressure test to see exactly where it leaks. Yes, there is a distinct possibility that you may have to replace the radiator.
