Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here. I would start with removing the spark plugs and running a complete engine compression test to be sure the head gaskets where not damaged when the engine was overheated. If you can get this done and post back with the compression readings I will help you get this resolved.
