mine did the same over heat thing and it was as the coolant was off. What mix did you put in?

My mechanic did a flush and pressure test (and water pump test) and refill of 60/40 coolant mix for 30

I have a invoice in my paperwork for replaced cylinder head fitted and belts (previous owned supplied) 1180.

Hope that helps.

Could be the temp switch as well. Are the fans comming on at all?

Heater could be an air lock, or a dud matrix.

EDIT, When mine overheated, It hit STOP twice like yours, I was lucky the head was fine! I couldnt pull over where I was in rush hour traffic!
