first of all. stop driving the car till you get it fixed. the fact that you have overheated numerous times may have compouded the problem. you need to have a dye put in system to check the leak. then a hydrocarbon test for internal engine damage. after these tests are done, then we can discuss a course of action for a proper repair.
