Some times this problem comes from lack of coolant wather. or a watherpump faliur.

check pump drive belt.
refil coolant, remember to refil radiator too.
check under car when running for leek, dripping.
check oil cap inside after running, if inside of cab is foam like, it is possible a burnt topgasket.
if none of the above, replace temp censor and thermostat.

good luck.

Tire will not come off, once the nuts have been taken off

The wheel sometimes semi rusts to the hub. Put a few wheel nuts back on loosely, Then hit the wheel from the back, Keep rotating the wheel to change the place you hit the wheel, Try not to hit the tyre sidewall. A rubber mallet on the inside of the rim is best.
