Hello. I would strongly urge you to not continue to driving your vehicle in this condition. Continuing to drive your vehicle in this condition could cause damage to many components of your engine which would be costly to repair and/or replace. As soon as possible, have a certified technician, like one from YourMechanic, perform a coolant system check to determine why your car is overheating.
