Hello and welcome to Justanswer!

There are many possible causes for a no start condition but if it was actually caused by the overheating then internal engine damage would be the cause. That may not be the case though.

Have you checked for fault codes?
Have you checked fuel pressure?
Does the engine sound normal when cranking or is it faster or uneven?
