Check for trapped air in cooling system, restrictions in the airflow through your rad, partially stuck thermostat....mine used to overheat if I put more than 50% antifreeze in the cooling system, when the owner's manual says 50% it MEANS 50%!!! See if your heater will produce warm air, if you have no heat you also have no circulating coolant.
