Have you checked the engine coolant level? On a COLD non running engine remove the radiator cap and ensure that the coolant level is up to the filler neck and that the coolant is also at the full level mark on the plastic overflow reservoir. Be sure that you replace the radiator cap.

What indication if any is given by the temperature gauge on the dash - hot, normal cool etc?

Is the radiator fan running when the engine overheats?

Also just to be sure have you checked the engine oil level? Again with a COLD non running engine check the level of the oil on the engine oil dipstick.

@sunmoonstars , LeAnn, do not continue driving your vehicle if you suspect it is over heating. There are numerous things that can cause a engine to over heat. As jayeff recommended check all fluid levels to make sure they are OK and take into a good shop and have a Technician have a look, diagnose issue and estimate repair before it worse, costing you a lot more. Good luck.

I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.
