Well when does it run hot? In traffic? highway speeds? Have you checked to make sure the coolant level is at the proper level and that the crossover connector tube isnt leaking? Are the fans working?

The vehicle has to be raised, it is hard enough doing it on the lift let alone trying that on the ground, You may want to reach into your wallet on this one

take it to a car wash and wash the radiator from the front engine side outward........get the bugs and crud out.
also while having your thermostat changed like Glenn said, have them flush it too
