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.

It appears as if the engine died due to overheating and now will not start. IF that's the case then internal engine damage is likely. Damage can be done to pistons, the block, heads, and even the crankshaft, rods and bearings due to overheating.

What happens when trying to start the engine now?
