Have the computer scanned for code/s-you have a problem within the engine management system that caused the CEL to turn on-This is your starting point of diagnosis, finding out what's going on.

I would get a dealer to do a scan with a TECH 1 scanner rater than a generic scanner for this problem, the tech 1 will give a lot more info, if you have to get a local work shop, to do the scan, ensure that they have a top of the range scanner or they may not pick up the fault.

Would not drive it to far, I would get the codes out of the ECU and post them here, it will shut down if it is a real problem or go into limp mode, the over heating will do more damage and has more than likely set all this in motion.

No way of knowing until it has been diagnosed fully, sorry just can't say.
