Poor circulation of coolant can cause overheating. Common problems that are associated with poor circulation is a bad water pump or impeller, restrictions from debris in the system, drive belt for the water pump has broken or loose, or thermostat may be sticking. It is quite common to see water pumps leaking from the weap hole in the pump bottom. Replacement of the pump is the only cure.

Other problems that can cause poor circulation would be collapsed hoses leading to and from the radiator. When replacing hoses its best to buy direct replacement hoses, if you buy just a flex hose make sure its the right lenght to avoid it being too long and becoming crimped.
