Hi Michael. In most cases, when you have an engine overheat and it’s accompanied by oil leaking, that tends to be a sign of a blown head gasket. This is typically a major engine repair, so I would strongly recommend having the vehicle inspected first, to verify that this has actually occurred. If so, you might want to consider purchasing a new vehicle, as the cost of trying to repair head gasket damage, plus repairing the cause of the overheating problem will typically exceed the value of the vehicle.
