Quite possibly more wrong but for now that behavior is just that it isn't full of coolant and you are just making it worse driving until you know for sure it's full.


You may not want to but bet heater doesn't work properly now you are way too low and can hold air pockets that don't just purge out,

You could still have some air pockets in the system or it's also very possible that the original overheating did internal damage and you know have a blown head gasket.

Are the cooling fans coming on?

He stated it only overheats while driving so I doubt it's a fan issue.
