    try the coils if not that try the computer or it could of blew the head gasket check the oil if it is milky you blew the head gasket or it might be a timing belt and water pump combo

    Sounds like a head gasket based upon the fact that it was overheating badly and shut off. Now with the engine cool it does not start usually points to head gasket / low compression from bad gasket in between cylinders.
