Radiator could be clogged inside, pull of water pump and inspect it, the block to head coolant ports could be clogged up with bits of rusty block, gauge could be inaccurate if your going off that, if its got a viscous clutch fan it could be rooted and not locking up properly, thermostat, theres heaps of reasons.......... when does it do it, how long does it take to do it, does it go fine round town, yeah need more specifics.

lol. how can we help with you being so vague???? what engine is in it? is it auto or manual and when does it over heat? 10 mins or more of driving round town? or 10 mins or more of fwy driving.

there are a billion things that could be affecting temperature, im not gonna go through them all. you need to be more specific

I agree, there is not enough info here, obviously icylegend is having trouble communicating the problem, finding the conditions that the car overheats is what we really want, for the moment I dont think we need to know what engine or the trans type(is that really that relevant?)

On a 308 you can put the front hoses on backward and the coolant tends to circulate around the engine instead of going through the radiator, thats a good example of why we need to know more!
