Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. You could be leaking coolant from the engine or a hose, even the cap. It would explain why the car is overheating. You need to check your coolant level and restore it to normal if it is low. You need to find out exactly where it is coming from in order to determine the next move. Make sure you check all your coolant hoses and clamps. Make sure they are tight and completely on. Make sure it is not leaking from the coolant cap. Make sure you add water or coolant before you start it. Start it up and observe where the water is coming from. Just because it is leaking, doesn't mean you don't have a bad thermostat or water pump. This is your first move though. Make sure your fans are kicking on. If they are not, check the fuse. If you have any other questions, let me know and thanks for using FixYa.

Im sorry to hear about your problem. What has happened is that you have blown a head gasket. They are not too hard to fix but where the problem occurs is that the heads nee to be taken to ma shop to check for warping. When the engine overheats to the point of blowing head gasket the heads may warp so that if they aren't checked, when you install the new gaskets they may blow out under normal condidtions. Before you attempt to change the gaskets have the heads checked and if needed just about any machine shop can bring them back to OEM tolerances. If you have anymore questions feel free to ask.
