1999 C230 Kompressor problems...

Hey... I've been a spectator since December and appreciate the things I've learned about my car just by reading the forums here... I finally decided to join and personally ask a question since I'm dumbfounded about my situation... I'll try to make a long story as short as possible...

First off, my precious Kompressor is overheating... When I get caught in traffic or a red light, it'll cut off after running for half the day... Take a few minutes and it'll start back up only not as strong as before... My temperature gauge doesn't read an overheating temperature, it's at a wonderful 80'C... Water pump works fine, and I just changed the thermostat thinkin' it'll fix the problem... My car leaks no fluids and the diagnostics read mostly emissions codes since I have two O2 sensors malfunctioning... One code I just look up may be telling me that I need a throttle body cleaning... This may help the engine but I believe may be useless in my overheating... My last fuel injection cleaning was at 170K and no visible carbon deposits were removed... I'm at 188K now and cannot figure out whats goin' on... Hopefully someone may be able to help... I'm not issuing out any homework, but hopefully, someone more experienced can assist me...

My codes read...

Not overheating. Cat clogged maybe, causing back pressure that's crimping the supercharger's work on the top end. O2 sensors packing up causing mixture to richen. Supercharger bearings seizing or seized, overheating, shutting things down until they cool so car will restart. Is the supercharger belt or gear driven? Check the belt if it's a belt. I think your emission codes are the key. It's not your cooling system. Go to Advance Auto--they will read the codes for free and tell you what they say.
