Always be proactive to your car overheating by regularly checking the fluid levels in your car, as well as checking belts and hoses.
well you must check coolant level if you dont have leak and over heat
check water pump and fan clutch you will notice city driving over heat annd higway is ok
if all is ok and overheat in high way and highspeed check type of your oil it is wrong type
water pump failure cause small leak arround it due to bad sealing
some overheating due to air pocket in the system
to remove this air open radiator cap before starting and make coolant level ok then jack your car up from front side close to radiator cap side
then warm up your engine 3 or 4mintues till thhermostate open
and checkk your coolant moving then you will found that coolant level down abit after thermostate open
if alll is ok change thermostate and radiator cap and test drive and check for loosing coolant again
Some practical tips, independent of your particular car.
Always drive in the highest gear possible that the car will 'pull' in. Change up as soon as possible. These steps mean your engine will not be working as hard, so will tend to heat up less.
Turn the engine off if you stop in traffic, particularly in hot weather, pretty much all cars rely on forward motion to some extent to get air flowing through the radiator - sittin still massively reduces the flow of cooling air through your engine's cooling system.
Use the least possible electrical items on your car. Running air-con, heated screens, heater fan on full speed, and full-beam lights will all put a higher load on the engine, and tend to cause it to heat up more.
