      It sounds like a fan motor prodlem. Tap on fan motor when temp gets to 220 deg. At times fan comes on this not a fix gust a quick test . At the same time have a meter on the power wire see it grounds when temp gets high.

      The most common cause of overheating is because of an external leak from a water pump or a radiator or heater hose. The way to find the leak is to wait till it is overnight cold and maybe just pour water in and see if the leak is large enough to see it simply leak out from where it has a leak. if you pour in a half gallon or more and you still see no leak its time to pressure check the system.

      Here is a short list of possible causes for overheating;

      Low coolant level
      Leaking coolant
      Improper coolant concentration (not at recommended 50 / 50 mix of anti-freeze and water)
      Clogged radiator hoses
      Clogged heater hoses
      Clogged radiator passages
      Clogged heater core
      Faulty thermostat
      Faulty water pump
      Faulty radiator cooling fans
      Faulty radiator cooling fan switch (coolant temperature sensor)
      Faulty / worn serpentine drive belt
      Faulty / worn drive belt tensioner

      First step - have the stored fault codes or check engine light scanned - for free - at any local auto parts store; Advance Auto, Auto Zone, NAPA. Then, post a reply as 'add answer' with the specific code for more assistance. There may be a fault code stored in the OBD memory which may not be displayed as a check engine light.

      Possible Causes of Engine Hesitation or Stumble:

      Dirty fuel injectors (cleaning the injectors often fixes this)
      Dirty air filter (change filter)
      Dirty / clogged fuel filter (change filter)
      Bad MAP (manifold absolute pressure) sensor
      Bad TPS (throttle position) sensor
      Bad or dirty MAF (mass airflow) sensor
      Low fuel pressure (leaky fuel pressure regulator or weak fuel pump)
      Vacuum leaks (intake manifold, vacuum hoses, throttle body, EGR valve)
      Bad gasoline (fuel contaminated with water or too much alcohol)

      Sometimes, what feels like a hesitation is actually ignition misfire rather than lean misfire. The causes of ignition misfire may include:

      Dirty or worn spark plugs
      Bad plug wires
      Weak ignition coil
      Wet plug wires

      Does it do it in drive as well? Sounds like they just need to reposition the engine, because the
      motor mounts are adjustable.
