Depending on how severely it overheated, it could be that the head gasket is damaged and in need of repair. There are a few different ways of diagnosing the head gasket, the simplest is to crank the engine while you have a helper smell the exhaust pipe looking for either blue smoke (burning oil) or a white smoke and sweet smell (burning coolant). If you have a radiator cap your should remove it and look for oil (signs of blown head gasket) or a brown color in the coolant. Other options are to do a compression check on the engine.
