The above link explains what to look for under such circumstances.

Once you get the source, let me know what is missing and we can get to resolving the problem.

Fuel pump tends to go bad much easier when fuel tank level is low most of the time and that could be the likely cause.

The overheating could have damaged the head gaskets and not allow the engine to start if the compression has dropped.

I believe you have a bad radiator cap as well, the presence of coolant on top of it indicates so.

Thankyou so much for asking. My husband put in liquid glass napprox. 2 months ago and it's been running alright. (He had draininf fluids and all your supposed to do. Now the other day it started acting hot and we went to the spot to pick it up and were able to drive it about 4 minutes back home. Husband fiquired out that the water pump is hanging out? Augh. Looked up when I put in the water pump and timing belt (which was a yr. Ago tomarrow) bought at local parts store it does have a warranty but its like 3-400 dollars to replace that! Awe!

If the water pump is leaking, a pressure test should show some results.
It is difficult to say about the quality of after market parts so it is best to test them out.
