Check your engine oil more often, you shouldn't let it get that far down.

Find an auto shop or place like AUTOZONE (free) who will read the trouble code
& tell you what you need.

Add water when it cools down, check the temp & if the electric fan comes on.

It could be as simple as a bad plug wire , plug or a vacuum leak.
Find a way to have the check engine light code read.
