Water pump may have gone bad,but continuing to drive it and running it hot again,may have hurt the engine,meaning head damage if you heard sound,s from engine.

Agreed. Does it crank over or locked up?

No I haven't heard a noise from engine but sounds like it wantvto turn over but dont

Rip Bo

But ran it while it was hot then heard a knocking noise then it killed don't wanna start again


Uh oh. May be hydro-locked if coolant got in combustion chamber, or seized just from heat. A knocking sound is always a bad sign. Pull all spark plugs and try to crank over. If coolant shoots out a plug hole, better start surgery, heads off. If it still does not crank over (assuming battery/starter is good) even worse
