Get your car checked for leaks in the cooling system once you know there are no leaks check the thermostat, check that its still good working condition. Also have your water pump checked, then do a flush of the cooling system, its easy you can do it your self there awesome videos on YouTube i recommend checking out chrisfixit on YouTube. Also using water should be used only when coolant is not available water causes rust and it can be damaging to your cooling system, and if you do all this your self make sure to purge the cooling system of air again YouTube can help you out on how to do this your self, hope this helps.

Thanx I'll get back to u let's waahat happened
