Wow, this is not good. You can not expect a filter and oil change to work a miracle. The engine is in dire need of repair. I doubt the engine oil loss will stop and the overheating will continue or get worse.
Checking the oil in a vehicle is very important. You run a car low on oil and coolant and you are asking to have serious enough problems to require an overhaul or a new car.
Fill the fluids to the top, drive the car and check the fluid levels. I am guessing that the compression is dropped in the cylinders. I suspect that the car is burning oil and the plugs are covered with oil deposit. Either that or you have a serious leak you need to find. I might also venture a guess that the head gasket it bad as well.
You need to watch the car closer.
