Leaking oil…or USING oil? Is there a a small puddle of oil on the floor under the car?

Or seen creeping down the engine somewhere, on its way to the ground.

A blown head gasket can be involved with both overheating, and with oil leaking out where the head and engine block are joined.

Yes, more info please, if this is a sincere request for help/advice.

Sounds like you need to find a good Euro mechanic… Or at least give us some useful information about the vehicle and what is going on with it…

Do you open the hood and check fluid levels in between scheduled services . . . ?!

And as the other guys have said, please give us more information

What were you doing when the car overheated?

Driving up a steep hill with 5 people in the car and 5 bags of cement in the trunk?

Did you drive over something which may have damaged your engine oil pan and/or radiator?

The overheating could be caused by something simple, low of coolant, or cooling system pressure cap. Faulty thermostat common cause too. Ask your shop to check. If nothing wrong w/those, next step is probably a cooling system pressure test. Are the engine compartment fans spinning like crazy when this occurs? I expect most 9 year old cars leak at least a little oil. Suggest to explain more; oil seen on the ground under the car? You have to add oil between oil changes?
