It could be something very serious like an issue with a headgasket allowing air into the system. I would honestly get the engine tested for it. I dealt with overheating on an old 3100 for a long time, couldn't chase it down and it turned out to be the headgasket.

Did you check that you cooling fans are both operating?
Check the thermostat? ( If not a fail safe type, and stuck closed could be the problem )

Both fans are working and it is a fail safe type of t stat and the car won't stay cool enough to make it to anywhere to have the system tested we're stuck in a campground about 30 minutes from any town I've been doing the work from other people bringing me the parts and just doing it I think it could be the head gasket is there any way that I could diagnose it to be the head gasket without taking everything down and looking at the gaskets themselves
