Default Running hot 96 2.3L

So as it says the truck is running hot. the only thing done to it lately was firestone replacing my catalytic converter. I only mention that because i have work done there before and drove away with a new problem. the only thing i noticed when i looked under the hood is that the spot where the air intake meets the wall was loose. any ideas of what to check what be greatly appreciated.

Did they install it incorrectly somehow and make it create excess backpressure? That's hard to do.

If you have work done there before: take it to them and tell them to look over the cooling system/running hot.
