You definately blew a head gasket, depending on how long the vehicle was overheated , you may have burn't some valves, this would cause a lack of compression, you may have have also broken some internal engine components, hence the clunking noise while trying to sart the engine, sorry for the not so good news.... Have a mechanic friend come and take a look at it for you....
