First problem sounds the temperature isn't registering so the car isn't putting enough water on the engine to cool it down. That's a pretty serious problem I would take it to a mechanic. Don't wanna burn up your engine if it is failing. A/c may need more free on (however you spell it) which is why it isnt getting cold.

Re: Problems

if its overheating while idling check to see if your fans kick on. if not then thats the problem. as for the ac turn your ac on and fan on high and check to see if the ac clutch kicks on. if it doesnt then its likely bc you have no pressure in the system. try having it recharged-r134a- and it should make the clutch kick back on and blow cold once again. if the clutch doesnt kick back on then you have a bad ac compresson. if it doesnt hold a charge youve got a leak in the system somewhere.

Maybe your fan switch has gone out?
