Hello, I have a very small crack on the top of my radiator. I did get it sealed. The other day I was on the highway doing 65 mph. When I looked at the dash I saw that my car was way overheated. I continued to drive it about two miles trying to get to the exit but it stalled out. Now it will not start. When I turn the key I can hear the engine turning slow but it wont turn over. I tried jumping it and nothing, same thing. By the way, it overheated because the repair on the radiator cracked again and all of the coolant came out the top. I put more in and its not leaking but it is cracked on the top of the radiator about a half inch. I'm lost, please some suggestions.

Those engines are tough. You most likely warped a head, and are losing enough compression to the point it wont start. My advice however is to throw a motor in it. Once an engine gets that hot, they are never the same. 4.3s are a dime a dozen. But expect to pay a pretty penny to get one installed by a garage.
