Sound,s like you may have a coolant issue all so,meaning bad water pump,thermostat,for the over heating,all so check the oil pressure it could be causing all the issue,s of the over heating and shut down all so,meaning bad oil pump,it will cause it to stall and heat up like that to.

So oil pump thermostat and what about ecm? I see that allot

Ecm issue could cause issue of shut down,but not heating issue,and if it were ecm doing it,your engine light would flash on and off in this model to give you code.

It flashes like three times and then four times but I don't know how to tell the codes I been looking and found nothing

Give me few minutes to find the code,be right back with you.

The code is a bad cam shaft postion sensor,PO340

30

Would that cause it to do that though it won't even drive it stays shutting off

30

And how did you find the codes because it might be doing more then that it just blinks a few times

Cam shaft postion sensor
