The very first thing you probably should learn is, don't let the car overheat. Ever.
If you drove it hot to the point of losing power and by the sounds of it you did it more than once, you have likely done serious internal engine damage now such as a blown head gasket or cracked head.
You may have had a small problem to start with but driving it hot has developed into something far more serious.
