There are several things that can make your vehicle overheat. A fan that does not operate. A sticking closed thermostat. A radiator restriction. A water pump that has a broken impellar. Cylinder head gasket failure, or head cracks.

my truck over heated and at same time the oil gauge read low heat stopped working and temp was on 260. it has been sputtering and kinda choking out. like it aint getting gas.

The sputtering and choking is probably the engine trying to protect itself from catastrophic failure from overheating even more. Or internal damage may be occuring - hard to say.

If you have no heat and overheating, think thermostat first. Hopefully it is that simple.
