    Clogged radiator? Try a radiator flush.

    Does the fan work?
    Relay switch?
    Eating or leaking water?
    thermo couldn't be the culprit for over heating.

    air in system? Did it just start overheating? I believe you should have 2 fans.

    You can be 'afraid' all you want but if you don't check these things stated by members...
    you could ruin your motor when it gets nice an hot
    (or if you have checked these things....you should have said so already)

    I feel like this thread just took a 180. Fix it and make it a solid car...then you can think about selling it. Or chop the price considerably and maybe someone will want it for a donor car or a big project. 153,xxx miles is NOT good...not horrible but definitely not good
