It's hard to say with the info given, but it does sound like serious engine damage.

if it overheats and you try to start it, it will cause serious damage to your pistons inside the engine because heat will cause it to explode...

sorry to say,your motor is shot,probley cooked all the bearings,melted a piston or 2 warped the heads,dont you just hate aluiminum engines,I do,get them hot 1 time,they toast,sorry for the bad news,
