    The overheating condition may be related to; leaking coolant, coolant mixture is incorrect (not at recommended 50/50 water and anti-freeze), faulty thermostat, faulty / clogged radiator hoses, clogged / restricted radiator, faulty water pump, clogged / restricted cooling passages in the engine, radiator fans faulty, faulty radiator fan clutch (if equipped), fan belt stretched or slipping
