need to find out where fluid is going or should I say coming out... sound bad either way, could be many things at this point from a hose to a cracked cylinder heads, crack block, head gaskets but sounds like the motor is on its last leg. sorry I wasn't much help.

Coolant reservoir was still full? Water pump maybe? Worth spending money to fix? Just got it three months ago,made four payments, what should I do?

Start cheap and replace thermostat.

hoses will pinch shut when hood closed and in motion , look for soft hoses....when it overheats, dont run motor till cool down some....ok as much as 3/4 to 7/8 heat guage, no further. serious damage to be done yes, start cheap... check out thermostat... boil it on the stove to see if it opens ...gooluk
