What does this mean? You think the engine is overheating? What makes you believe this?

What does the tachometer do when you try to move it? Does it rev really high, or does the engine bog down?

How recently did you have the oil changed? Transmission fluid? Have you ever had the pressure switches replaced?

How many miles on this thing?

After you drive, check carefully if one wheel is hotter than the one on the other side. If so, you have a sticking brake caliper.
