Default overheating

I have a 2004 wrx. Custom build 2.5 block with 2.0 heads. At time my car tends to overheat a little at idle, when I am really on the gas or going uphill. I am up in the Barstow area. This only happens when it is really HOT outside. Whenever it running into the red I have to pull over and basically turn the car off so it cools back down. When I am going downhill in neutral I am running at the optimal temp. When I am driving in the morning when it is cooler. The engine never starts overheating at all......Besides for the obvious sun....any reason why it would be doing this and how can I fix it

Is your coolant level low?

Check for leaks when your engine is hot & cold?

Does it smell sweet?

Do your radiator fans turn on?
(With your motor off, turn the ignition to the 'ON' position & turn your AC on. You should here the fans turn on.
If they don't, check the connection for the fans (which is right by the fans)

Check the fuse to the radiator fans.

Your thermostat may be busted (maybe)
