No, being late for an oil change will not cause overheating, unless you haven't changed it for 30,000 miles. You want to avoid driving your car if it is overheating, you will cause damage to the engine that will be very expensive to repair. Get it towed to a shop if you cannot drive it without overheating the engine. http://repairpal.com/san-antonio-auto-repair

My 2005 x-type was also overheating. The problem was a hole in the coolant reservoir hose... $300.00 repair job! When I looked under the hood I could see the reservoir container was empty and orange liquid was leaking. This is the only time my car has overheated. Initially, I thought it was the 100+ degree temperatures here :-)

The plastic coolant reservoir is prone to leak. The reservoir can mysteriously lose coolant or coolant may pool under the engine compartment. If this occurs, the coolant reservoir should be inspect...

The small plastic lines or tubes that carry the hot coolant to the radiator may become brittle and break. Coolant can leak out and cause the engine to overheat.
