Lean is from lack of fuel. Either from a clogged or improperly jetted fuel system, Or, an air leak.
I would start ensuring your cooling system is ok. An engine that is running hot from a lean condition generally doesnt last too long before a piston failure.
Consistently getting hotter engine temps with what may seem decent engine performance yet, will usually be a coolant obstruction.
