Sounds like your catalytic converter is blocked. Have an emissions test and replace your fuel filter as a precaution.

Hi Alpheus, Im AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair

Alpheus, overheating doesn't always mean headgasket. BUT, on some engines you must be very careful when placing the head gasket on the block because some heatgaskets can be turned either way and if placed wrong can cause overheating. Other things that can cause overheating are: Restricted Radiator, Inoperable Cooling Fans, Stuck Thermostat, Defective Water Pumps, Warped Heads. Hope this helps and please send people to my auto-repair-website at: http://www.bigasautorepair.com/

Google is your friend...and look around the differential.....but you won't see it because it is inside......

Not something to muck about with yourself if you can't even remove the plastic covers surrounding the steering column. And especially nothing to muck about with if you have an airbag fitted to your steering hub.
by now, hopefully, you have taken this to a shop to do the work....which also includes reprogramming the immobilized etc.
Why is it so complicated..to stop thieves....

this is from the web, yahoo answers I think

Best Answer: That was the dumbest answer. On a four cylinder engine a o2 sensor is reading the air fuel ratio from the exhaust of all four cylinders. There is a o2 sensor before and after the catalytic converter. Bank 2 is refering to the o2 sensor after the cat. When u replace it you need to inspect the cat and make sure its not coming apart from the inside. If it is you need a new one. If u cant afford one then i would just hollow out the cat with a large screwdriver. If u hollow it out ur car wont pass emission testing.

If it still shifts OK, then the cluster is bad. More light the electric motors that turn those needles. Having codes read would tell you a lot. Code readers won't read the cluster. Scanners do. If you don't have speed sensor or coolant sensor codes. Replace the cluster or motors.

Call the dealer with the VIN#, they might be able to. Most newer cars have them. Anything under 05 might not. A scanner will tell you for sure.

it should be .045". depending on the year there maybe a sticker/decal under the hood that says what the plug gap is.

the transmission linkage must not be putting car in neutral. depress the clutch and see if it will roll. that accomplished will rule out brakes dragging. neutral safety switch not satisfied therefore no start.
