You should have the vehicle checked for a stuck thermostat and fan operation. You should not drive the vehicle until the overheating is checked and fixed. Otherwise, you may blow a head gasket and warp the head. Since the car’s drivability is a concern, consider YourMechanic, as a certified technician can come to you and diagnose your overheating symptoms.
