good afternoon my name is ***** ***** I will assist

what was the reason for overheating??? the issue is if it is constantly overheating, you may have damaged the head gasket. when that happens, compression leaks into the cooling system and air is the result. the heater core is at the top of the cooling system and thats why you have no heat

you can get a chemical kit at a parts store to check for hydrocarbons in the coolant. chances are there will be which will require removal of the cylinder head and replacing the gasket
