Hello, what can cause a peugeot 206 55 plate, 1.6 engine

Customer Question

what can cause a peugeot 206 55 plate, 1.6 engine to over heat? I have just bought the car and drove it home for about 20 mins, when I got home I felt the bonnet of the car and it was very hot, the car wasn't smoking but it seemed hotter than it should be, is there some kind of engine coolant I could buy?
thank you,
