OVERHEATED

1996 Ford Ranger

Engine Mechanical problem
1996 Ford Ranger 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual

what could cause the engine to not start when the motor has overheated? The motor will turn over and fire, and get fuel. The motor hits but doesn't start. What could it be?

Could have warped and blew out the headgasket. Without that the cylinders will not build up pressure so it willl not run. Did coolant spray out anywhere? How long was it ran on hot?

Get a compression test done and get back to me wiht the results.
