Have you checked the radiator and coolant reservoir? It may be very, very low or out of coolant..possibly a leak somewhere. Are there any indicators on the dash that light up..if so, what are they??

Just did it was out. I put water in it and she still won't go.

The only dash indicated on is check engen it has Ben on since I got it.

Best to put in a 50/50 mix of coolant & water, instead of straight water. Also, get the codes read from a mechanic on the check engine light to see what might be the problem and go from there. Sounds like the car may have to be towed there to do that though....

It's cool, at least they will feel some urgency to check those codes.

If it got really hot then it probably fried the engine, might try removing all of the spark plugs and see if the engine will turn over then, if it will then run a compression check.

I have the same problem with my wife car she over heated it now got get it to start I check to see if it was getting fire abd its not I was told it probably burned up the coil pack getting so hot is that possible
