I have a 2000 s40 After towing it to the house I noticed loss of compression by turning the engine over by hand. Any suggestions.

I previously overheated 2 times. The second time I replaced the thermostat. I thought it was sticking. This time the top hose split.

Do you
have the same problem?

At this point you may have blown a head gasket from the overheating.
The thermostat may have been bad or the rad may be clogged but I would have a leak down test performed to verify.
