I have a 1988 Jeep Cherokee Sport with a V-6 with ~111,000 miles on it. It ran out of coolant and overheated so that steam was billowing out of the plastic container. We added about 1.5 gallons of water and antifreeze and it cooled off. But now the engine won't turn over. The belts move when I turn the key and it sounds right but engine doesn't fire. What should I check out?
