My belt came off my engine while driving, causing the engine to overheat. I replace the belt and my engine still is overheating plus i'm losing water out of my radiator now. So I refilled the radiator and a pop sound occur while it was running. I shut the engine off when that happening and now the engine want start. I check the oil, fuses, and hoses all were okay. What could be the problem?

Most probably the engine has overheated excessively causing damage to the head gaskets. Get a compression test to determine if pressure is within specs.
