Q: overheating on 1994 Chevrolet Corsica

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
First it was my power steering fluid, i had to replace every few days. Then the check engine light would come on after 15 min or more of driving. bt no other bad signs until i started noticing smoke.so i figured i needed some water. right after now its running hot til the point it shut off on me tonight. i took it to auto zone and the man said maybe it had a seal where i put the water and i cracked it. what could be the problem. please help i really need my car

When you need wiper blades you go to Autozone, when you have a problem with your car you go to a repair shop. ; )
If someone sells parts it doesn't mean he has the slightest clue about repairs, otherwise all pharmacist would be doctors.
If it keeps overheating and shutting off there might be a blown head gasket. You really need to get it to a REPAIR SHOP to have it diagnosed. There are many good mechanics in NC who can check it for you. If you keep driving in this condition you might create a bigger, more expensive problem.
