    No liquid ? leak !

    If you fill the radiator, and the coolant is gone, then logic would tell us you have a leak.

    It might be a bad radiator cap, not holding pressure and the coolant is leaking past to the over flow bottle, head gasket leak, heater core leak, or one of the hoses.

    Put a pressure test on the radiator and it should show where the leak is.

    A stuck thermostat wil cause over heating, as will a intake manifold gasket resulting in the engine runnng too lean.

    Your oil is low on antifreeze. Mix some antifreeze into a 25/75 mixture and pour it into the crankcase. You might want to drop a couple of ice cubes in too.

    see if the little hose in the overflow container is plugged or came loose(if it sucks air,it will overheat)cuz water wont circulate
