I have a 96 lumina LS and it runs hot the second you turn the car on. I drove it about 3 miles and it slowed in speed. I pulled over to let the engine cool and when I started it back up it wouldnt start it would just make a clicking noise. Is the head gasket cracked?

Most likely and by driving it, you may have blown a head gasket and possible head damage.

Get someone to check it to confirm
