Hello. Thank you for writing in. Lets start by discussing the check engine and ABS lights. These are very general warning lights that can stand for a large number of issues detected by the computer. Luckily, they are doing exactly what we need them to do, and letting you know that there is an issue. To learn what the computer is trying to tell you, you need to have the car scanned for diagnostic troubleshooting codes. These will help you figure out what systems are being effected and you can take further diagnosis from there. Now in regards to your engine heating up, the issue can be related to the check engine light, or you may have a separate issue. This is why you should start by having the vehicle scanned, so you can tell what you are up against. Overheating issues are typically caused by bad coolant flow (thermostat, clog, bad water pump, leak), or low coolant levels. Have you checked the coolant level? Make sure this is always topped off, as overheating is the number one cause of destroying an engine.
