Is the coolant low? Any leaks? When was last time the Thermostat was replaced? Does it have Electric cooling fan(s) or fan clutch?. Those are the things I would check first. Does it only overheat with the A/C on?

Check the coolant, those 3.0L were imfamous for HG blowing #6 and #1 cly.

Does it skip or miss when started after sitting a while?

Coolant is good. I just replaced the thermostat a month ago. It has a fan clutch. I'm not sure if it overheats with ahe a/c on it has not been hot enough. thank for all your help.

Thanks,
Kurk
