Car won't start after over heating

Asked by Apr 22, 2016 at 12:57 AM about the 2005 Pontiac Grand Am SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car started over heating. After a little  better
look I replaced the water pump and the thermostat.  
The car still over heats and for some reason won't  
start after over heating until it cools.
