If you have a lot of rust in the radiator, first thing you need to flush all the old water and out new water drive it few hours. Flush all the water again and put coolant.

Thanks or your quick reply. So overheating of my car might be due to radiator rust???

Could very well be rust in the radiator causing it. Get the garage to check the water pump is working properly when you flush it all out. Give the fins of the condenser and radiator a good wash with a low pressure hose too.

maybe the fans are turning but not at the required speed...and in rare cases the engine itself might be weak that's why when you put load of compressor or push it abit hard and it starts to heat up along with what @sertac and @Barry mentioned
