Hi..there.. Could be a number of things..ideally the first checks would be the actual coolant level to ensure it is indeed correct and at the proper level when cold - the next obvious check is to ensure the radiator fans do kick in..you can maybe check this by simply turning on the the A/C and listen for the fans running..if not then manually inspect the fan to ensure it hasnt siezed up..you could also with a power probe send power to the motor itself and see if it responds..the fans on these are ECU controlled so info from the engine temp sensor allows the ecu to control the fan to kick in at certain times ie: when in traffic etc..these are known to have alot of problems with the engine temp sensors..so it could make sense to actually replace it and see if that helps..you need to ensure the sensor is the correct one by the colour of the connector body on the sensor...so start with that first ideally
