Whats really goin on....

So I was doing high speeds on the interstate and my car started to overheat (jus' a lil') So I slowed down and made it home....I figured my car was cool cause it usally overheats at 4,000 rpm......anywho I uh started the next morning and it is now officially a POS.....it runs fine at higher rpms but wont idle for anything......I've rebuilt the topend once already so i think it's time for a motor swap.....what do you guys think.....??????

do a compression test and see what turns up. Also, check all vacuum lines and sensor connections while you're doing this.
