First off, I am assuming that you have checked to make sure you have the proper amount of coolant in the vehicle. If you do not that will cause the engine to overheat, and also when an engine over heats it will cause it to stop the heater from throwing out heat. IF you have checked to make sure that there is a proper amount of coolant in the engine I would then have the car checked to make sure that the water pump is working properly.

Heater is not working right. heat hardly comes out at all. the heat does not keep me warm at all.

GM products have been having problems with their electrical controlled heat/cooling system..the ativator to the duct doors goes on the driver side is an easier fix but the other near the center can be tricky and labor intensive to repair..Have a mechanic check it out...but before doing that go the your local auto parts and buy a auto heat thermometer that is designed to read air temp out of the heat ducts inside the car. Then let the engine warm up to operating turn the heat to full heat and place the thermometer in the main vents on the dash. The temp should read in the 70-80 degree range and your heat gauge should read about 1/3 to 1/2 way on the dail....If low heat open the hood and carefully check the upper hose to the radiator that comes out of the top of the engine through the should be hot to the touch and very firm..if warm and squishy you may have low fluid or sticking thermostat..This time of year when heat is required more often thermostats can stick in the open position not allowing the fluid to heat to the higher temp needed for your heating operation....This is a fairly easy and inexpensive repair and can be a DIY ..hopefully this is the problem and not the door activator....just remember to check the fluid level while the engine us off and careful and good luck..

Engine is getting hot

Obviously, check the coolant level first.
I'm sure you've already done that, so next would be to replace the thermostat. If the thermostat is sticking in the closed position, the engine will overheat.
It could also be that the radiator is getting plugged, in which case you'd either need a new radiator or you'd need to have the radiator professionally cleaned.
If it's "none of the above", it could be a damaged head gasket. Generally, if the head gasket goes it causes the coolant to blow out the overflow. Once the head gasket has failed the engine just won't hold coolant. If that's the case the only real option is to remove the head, have it machined to make it perfectly flat again, (overheating causes heads to warp slightly and a new head gasket won't seal properly) and reassemble.
Good luck. Hope it's a cheap fix for you.

Coolint fan is not working the temp. meter goes high

If the fan isn't working check the fuse/relay for it. most of the time when a car overheats it is usually the thermostat (cheap and easy fix) or the water pump. if this helps please leave feedback.

ck the coolant level, if low, top off and ck for leaks. then see if the heat comes back. if coolant level is good and engine temp guage is in the middle, flush heater core. if engine temp is too low, replace thermostat.

This sounds to me like the thermstat is is a low temp one, I would check and see what temp it is and replace it with a 195 degree thermostat. either it is faulty or as I say it is a low temp one. One other thing to check is that the gate valve on the heater vent / hoses is openning properly, and not stuck. Good luck and remember to rate all solutions that you get on FixYa, thanx.
