That car is over heating! Things to check #1Fan does it run #2thermostat change it #3 water pump pull the top rad hose to see if the pump is pushing water #4 last but worst flush the rad check to see that ther is good flow through it may be nessasary to change it. I'm sure one of these will sove your problem.
There is a hole in the plastic column cover on the bottom. This is the access to a spring loaded pin which keeps your keyswitch in the ignition hole. You may have a worn out key tumbler or the tumbler is loose in the housing and simply needs to be removed and reinserted to work again.
A drill bit or thin hex wrench needs to be poked into that mentioned bottom hole to release the tumbler from the housing with a gentle pull.
You need to find the source of the leak. it hasn't overheated yet because you keep catching it and re-filling. From your description, it sounds a lot like a bad water pump seal (part of pump) but without physically looking you can't be sure of that. when the pump seal begins to fail, internal pressure while running often will drive the seal tighter against the shaft stopping the leak. as pressure drops as the engine cools, the seal relaxes and permits seepage. With time, that will change and it will leak all the time.
If fuel filter hasn't been done lately I would start there & if you can, have fuel pressure tested while your at it. You may have tired fuel pump but pressure test will confirm. If you recently filled up somewhere different last time you got gas, I'd also try some "Heet" or similar just incase you got a tank full with some water in it.
