hmmmm... well, I have the same car. I have only 135K on the clock. I would say everything that is wearable will probably need replacing.
All the fluids.
All the belts. (maybe even the ones wrapped around those beautiful bottlecaps. )
Brake pads, and while you're in there, might as well see if the shocks are still usable. Oh yeah, and see what kind of time you have left on your rotors.
I would take it to a reputable shop and have them do the carbon cleaning thing too. That could help your hesitation problem. Or it could be the fuel filter, a bad spark plug, a bad plug wire, or a bad idle module. Start with the cheap stuff first.
To deal with your overheating, if you haven't seen any results from changing the fluid, hoses and thermostat, you might just want to get it flushed at a shop.
I'm guessing you have an auto, is that correct?
...and the #1 thing you should buy? A Bentley Service Manual. That thing is the Bible for your car.
Good luck, and sorry for the novel.
