The car got overheated due to a radiator leak. I changed the radiator, the car will crank but idle rough and eventually turn off and wont crank again.

DEPENDING ON HOW LONG IT WAS DRIVEN WHILE OVERHEATED. IT'S POSSIBLE THAT YOU HAVE BLOWN A HEAD GASKET AND/OR DAMAGED THE HEAD

CHECK YOUR COOLANT FOR OIL AND YOUR OIL FOR WATER (THIS IS A SURE SIGN) HOWEVER, IT'S NOT A FULL TEST

YOU PROBABLY NEED TO DO A COMPRESSION TEST ON ALL OF THE CYLINDERS TO SEE IF THEY ARE WITHIN SPECS
