I have a 96 For Contour GL. It overheated to the point that not only was there blue smoke the anti-freeze was bubbling out from under the cap. Now it wants to turn over but wont, and after letting it sit for a couple hours it seems that there is no leaks anywhere. Checked the Oil and everything seems fine. What other issues do I need to be looking for?

You almost surely have a blown head gasket now from the heat and the engine will have to be torn down to repair it.
