How can I keep my car engine from overheating

Check your engine belts/hoses for cracks

The belts on your engine are very important to check monthly, and should be replaced if worn, glazed or frayed. They should also be tightened if slack is more than 1/2" between pulleys. Check and replace hoses that show bulging, rotting or are brittle; keep hose clamps tightened. Again, check these monthly.
