Turn your key to the On position ( don't start it ) now, on your heat/air panel, press and hold the OFF and the WARMER (red) buttons at the same time for about 8sec. You will see your dash light up with every segment lit, you can let go when it starts. Then you computer will run its diagnostic check for error codes. Have a pen and paper ready to copy them down. As a guess, I bet it's going to throw a O2 sensor code. Let me know the codes. After that just turn your key off and your done with that portion.

First, provided their are no visible coolant leaks and/or loss of coolant with no signs of leaks, I would thoroughly flush cooling system and replace coolant, then check and/or replace thermostat (you can place thermostat in boiling water to check for proper function), if you have tried these 2 steps and still are experiencing overheating you may need to replace your water pump which can be a tricky job if you're unfamiliar and try to do it yourself, however, I could walk you through it if necessary. Also visually check your radiator hoses for bulges, wear ,etc along with heater hoses etc. You may want to also check radiator fins to see if they are dirty/obstructed and clean if necessary. Let me know if I can assist you further and how it works out

I would suggest getting a Hanes or Chilton book first because you have a lot of things to remove. Drain radiator, remove intake, fuel rail, alternator, AC and many wires and vacuum hoses before you remove the heads.
