Look at your radiator. When your car overheats, let's say from a blown head gasket, the pressures can actually expand the tubes in the radiator. This expansion can cut off the air flow or reduce it. This easily happens to aluminum radiators, but can also happen to brass and copper rads.

After you get you car fixed, inspect your radiator with a flashlight. If you can't see the light through it, or the light is barely visible, then replace the radiator.
