Are you loosing coolant? Check the thermostat is working and the cooling fan is coming on, also get the radiator cleaned as you may have a blocked core, get the temp under control first then we can look at the throttle problem.

Hey. It can be water pump(less likely, but easy to check). Go to a service shop and check: Oil ways, oil pump, block of the engine(most likely problem)
