My engine keeps overheating.

Overheating can do extensive damage to your engine. If your vehicle is overheating, you want to get it fixed as soon as possible. There are many issues that can cause overheating; from a stuck closed thermostat to a blown head gasket. I suggest you have a qualified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, inspect your vehicle as soon as possible.
