Re: over heat n ABS matter

Firstly, which country are you in???
Is the radiator corroding at the bottom or does it have the fins falling out?
Does the fan kick in as the guage goes past 90?
If no, then look at changing the resistor pack on the back of the radiator.

The guage could be over reading.

Thermostats VERY RARELY stick closed, but yours could be.

The worst thing though is that your water pump impeller could have become dislodged from the spindle and is not spining with the engine, this would require the cambelt off and is the final option.
