Hi, my name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help. Is the check engine light currently on?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
but it was on before the engine overheated. Also, i checked the oil and it does not look like it has coolant in it.

Does the idle seem lower than normal? Looking at the RPM gauge what would you say the idle speed is?
