First question - did the engine and cooling system run dry / leak completely of all the coolant? If yes, then there may be sufficient damage due to the overheating to cause a cylinder head warpage or compression loss condition.

Next step would be the have two inexpensive tests performed; a cylinder compression test and a cylinder leakdown test. The results from these two tests will help you to determine your repair / replacement options.
