Sounds like your EG or PG radiator fluid is weak or is more water than glycol. You may have damaged your thermostate too. I bet its the thermostate or your loosing pressure. The radiator lid/cap needs to seal well, to maintain the water in a liquid state at elevated temperatures.

Or it has too much EG or PG ratioed to water.
