Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

There are quite a few possible causes for a no start condition and it's going to require some testing to determine exactly what is wrong. You may be missing spark or fuel, it could be a cam timing issue, but if it overheated and now will not start then there may be internal engine damage.

Have you checked for spark, fuel pressure, and for fault codes?
