If your engine over heated for a long period of time most likely the head gasket has failed causing the engine to stall. It depends on where the head gasket has failed, it usually (w/overheating) failed between to adjacent cylinders significantly reducing cylinder compression resulting in engine stall. However, is could be elsewhere.
A basic compression test of all four cylinder should show whether there is a loss in compression relative to the other cylinders.
