Default Re: New Guy -- overheating problem

Hi sorry if this is in the wrong place but this is my first post, and noticed a few overheating problems on here, my problem which may have been asked before is that last year after I bought my 2001 touring edition. I drove 240 miles and my radiator started overheating it then overheated after another 40 miles, I then managed to drive 200 miles without it overheating, since then I have only driven short distances but on occasions it still overheats and I hear a bubbling noise from under the bonnet. I have since had a engine pressure test done, which passed. I've also replaced the thermostat and radiator cap. But it still over heats. Can anyone suggest anything else please .

radiator fan. less than $100 and relatively easy to replace, if you're mechanically inclined.
