Do you have white smoke coming out of the tail pipe? How is the engine running?

You have 2.4 liter and it was a very common problem to blow the head gasket. Have it pressure tested. Try not to drive it any more than you need to until I get it fixed. If it is a head gasket then the antifreeze will get into the oil and do lots of internal damage.
