Hello and and welcome to JustAnswer!

If it was overheated repeatedly and now will not start then internal engine damage may have been done. Overheating can damage pistons, rings, cylinder walls and valvetrain components.

Does the engine sound normal when cranking or does it sound uneven, or faster than normal?

Have you checked for fault codes?
