The overheating could be related to low antifreeze or coolant, but is related to the oil pressure. My catera goes hot when the oil pressure is low. I don't want to say what the problem might be, but it could be bad. Check the coolant level and the coolant cap.
As for the 3rd gear, I am experiencing the same problem and am working with my mechanic to identify the issue. So far new transmission oil and filter have not corrected the issue. Maybe the transmission codes in the trany controller can identify the issue.

the trans lock light is associated with the trany being stuck in third gear. quick remedy, but not a fix is shut off the ignition and restart the car. once the car is warm the problem goes away

On the 99 there is a fuse box beside the battery under the hood. This has the main fuses and several relays and fuses as well.

interior main fuse panel is located under the steering wheel behind the trim panel that your knees always hit. turn two screws on bottom side about two or three turns (they will not come all the way out) and then lift panel up and out

i had a similar issue w/ my 99 catera the problem ended up being a burned up wire behind the interior fuse block for the hazard light circuit, remove the screws in the interior fuse panel and check that all the wires are in good order and tightly secured to the block and that all the fuses are in working order. the computer is so sensitive that seemingly major issues are often just small electrical glitches

could be a simple software issue have a mechanic hook the car up to a diagnostic machine and try reprogramming the main and transmission computers
