I wouldn't start on it at all, pass it by, a motor that has ben getting hot can... and maybe it did, cause some major damage. Probably be dropping a new motor in.

A 96 s10 won't shut off because it's overheating until it locks up or blows a head gasket

It has a bad engine. Look at what a good rebuilt engine will cost and take that cost and $250.00 off his asking price if you don't mind buying a problem vehicle. Or look elsewhere for a different one. There are a lot of good S10s out there waiting for you to buy it.
