Why won't my 2000 Chevy Malibu with 3.1 engine start?

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Well about a year n a half ago my
car ran hot and my intakes was
leaking so this man put some glass
liquid or something like that in my
coolant jug so it could go through
and seal all leak and it fixed the
problem BC it didn't run hot. I
haven't had a problem since. Well
about 2 weeks ago I got my spark
plugs and wires change. The next
day my car started running hot.
Water won't stay in the coolant jug
but its not leaking out the car
anywhere except when it's bubbling
out the jug. I changed the
thermostat, fan fuse,cranking fuse.
Its still ran hot. The next day I had
the switch on listen to the radio and
not even 5 mins later I tried
cranking my car and it wouldnt
crank its turning over but not
cranking up. Something keeps
draining the battery.
