with only this info heres what I can tell you to check. first check the coolant level, if it is low add coolant and check for leaks. Other parts to check or that could be the problem are the following:

Thermostat
engine fan
water pump
Clogged radiator
Blown headgasket.

again first check for leaks are there any? was any white smoke coming out of exhaust?
