Chugging then Overheat then Normal

Hi, I have a 95 F150 5.0 4WD Manual trans, it started to chug at intermittant times and speeds, check engine light would come on, did this for about 300 miles, different trips. It would also idle really low almost to a stall.
Then a recent 45 mile trip, outdoor temp 60's, rainy, it started to race at a high idle, still chugged, then overheated with steam coming from rear of engine. No indication on the gauge. After it cooled, about 5 hrs, no loss of fluid at overflow tank, or radiator. No sign of wet in cab.
Started right up, no high idle, no chug, ran it back another 45 miles ran great. No over heating, no high idle, nothing.
any ideas? thanks
