You may have done serious damage to the engine. If the water level is fine and you didn't blow your head offs when you penned the radiator cap like it tells toy not to when hot, it's the water circulation pump failing.
Water pump needs to be replaced. Don't keep driving it like that. It's bad bad bad for your engine. Unfortunately a water pump isn't typically easy to replace, seek professional help.
You need to check the engine all over when the engine over heats it very hard on it and could melt wiring and plastic parts after you check that look at the relays if the fan is out one of the relays may be out and you would need to replace it
sounds like a head and or head gasket problem when u overheat u can damage warp head or blow head gasket look at oil if milky look possible getting/having antifreeze leak into oil or if white smoke coming from rear exhaust sign of antifreeze getting into cylinder
Most engines don't fair well under extreme heat. It's apparent you might have some electrical issue's. Your rpm's or mph arm going up and down could be faulty speed sensor would cause arm problem. I think you may have more than one problem, the car shutting off is due to engine over-heating. Check cooling system-thermostat, water pump, radiator, engine fans and coolant temp sensor and fan relay's. It could be as simple as blown radiator hose.
Sorry. Could also be a cracked head or block. Take the spark plugs out and see if they are wet. Charge battery and turn engine over with the coil grounded and the sparkplugs out. If water flyes out of any cylinder,you may have to disassemble the engine.
