Question for you, when it overheated, did you continue to drive it, till the car shut off and was smoking?

unfortunately yes it died in the middle of a busy street and i had to start it. it died a second time and did not start again.

it still turns over just won't start.


U probably blew the head gasket by driving it while hot. Have a compression test done on it
