    You could have low coolant or air in the system. You could have a loose or worn belt. You could have a bad water pump. You could have a leak. Get it to a shop for a diagnosis before driving it much more, you don't want to damage the engine. 
  • Ok thanks I jus checked it needs coolant in it

    That's step one. Now you need to find out if there's a leak. A shop can do a pressure test on it.
