Overheating issues are usually pretty easy to fix. But since you said the reservoir was empty you should check your oil. Check the color and make sure it actually looks like oil. Of it looks milky brown like coffee with cream in it then that is an indicator of a blown headgasket. When you first noticed it overheating did the temp climb into the red? And if so for how long?
