It won't do anything what is wrong withit

I have filled the coolant but the engine is over heating. Does the radiator have another filling area?

The car shakes a little when started but then runs smoothly wanted to know what causes that and what can happen to car if not attended to

So the "Check Brake LIghts" warning has come on. I have no brake lights at all--either left, right, or center. I checked the bulbs in right and left light assemblies. I checked and even replaced the brake light fuse located in the glove box. The problem is still there. Please advise.

I have to unplug the battery to shut the lights off is this an expensive fix
