You or anybody else won't know if it starts later. The head could be cracked. The head gasket could be bad. There could be nothing wrong.

Most newer vehicles have a safety feature that will shut down the engine if it gets severely overheated. So it probably witll start again in a few hours, once the engine cools. My question is why did it overheat? Yes a cracked head will cause that. The engine will still run but you'll lose coolant too. HTH. -Jim
