THE ENGINE OVER HEATS

The engine over heats. The engine light is on and heat will not blow into the chassis. Recently, I've added 4 quarts of oil to the engine, and water/coolant to the radiator. I also purchase and installed a new battery (I was driving around with a dead one for a week and needed jumps every day to start the vehicle). Last night after driving for about 30 minutes, and seeing smoke gradually emerge from underneath the hood, it stalled. Thoughts on what the problem may be and the cost to repair the problem? Thanks and God bless.

Withou t knowing what is wrong it is not possible to determine the cost of repairs. There could be a coolant leak somewhrere and the coolant is causing the smoking. You need to find out where the leak is coming from.
