Wait for the car to cool off. \012Check for :\0121. Fuel- does it have gas?\0122. Spark- Is it getting good spark(electrical functioning-battery, starter, timing, etc.)\0123. Compression- If the valves are toast the piston will not compress the air/fuel mixture for the spark to ignite it. No explosion, no start.\012Try to start it. Is there power in the vehicle? Does the engine turn over? If the engine turns over, does it have fuel? If it doesnt crank and the battery is fully charged then try jumping the starter solenoid, if it doesnt turn the engine then you must check to see if the engine is turning freely or seized by turning the crank with a breaker bar and socket. Is the engine turns then you should be able to troubleshoot it, if it doesn't then something is not letting it turn either in the head(s) or in the crank and that equals to pretty expensive repair costs.\012IF you get it to start, shut it off immediately and find the source of the overheating before going any further. Check coolant level(make sure the car has had enough time to cool down), check water hoses for leaks or cracks, check for a stuck thermostat or a clogged radiator. \012
