    low speed overheat suggests an air circulation issue rather than a coolant circulation problem so I would first check operation of your cooling fan before digging any deeper. The fan should turn on at the proper temperature.

    Other simple things to check would be excessive debris stuck to the front of the radiator and too low a coolant level.
