Drove it oneday to the store and came out to start it and it wouldn't start. It wouldn' take boost. so someone pull the car home for me. We change the spark plugs and the wires. We change the fuel filter We had the coil check at Auto Zone and we also check the fuel filter and bought a new battery Started the car and it was running rough and vibrating and then it stop running. So we left it alone that day. The next day tried to start it and the battery was dead and it wouldn't start.

It may be that the coolant spraying from the open radiator shorted out the electric cooling fan. This would cause overheating even after refilling the antifreeze, and if the short is severe enough, could also drain the battery. Try charging the battery with a plug-in charger overnight, and remove the fuse for the radiator/cooling fan. If it starts up and runs as normal until it begins to heat up, this is probably the case. It would be a good idea to clean the whole engine with degreaser, being careful not to get it in the alternator, and to clean all electrical components with QD contact or electrical cleaner. It could also be a short in the heater fan circuit, but this is less likely. It is more likely that the draw from the heater fan took too much power away from the radiator fan, especially if the battery was marginal due to excess heat or shorting from having gotten very wet. Also, check that the polarity on the battery is correct, just for good measure.
If you can reach it that's a plus!!! try getting up there with a can of wd40 or other solvent and spray it. Then have someone pull the release and while its being pulled, give the leading edge of the hood a quick downward bounce and in most cases, it will open.
Yes, you probably have a shutoff on it. It is usually in the trunk along the drivers side of the car behind the liner. Remove some of the liner retainers and pull it away from the side and look for something mounted on the vertical brace. You should be able to manually press a mechanical button on it to reset it. It is intended to shut the fuel off in case you get into an accident. There is a chance that the filter is defective and collapsed internally but you should hear the fuel pump running if that was the case. Take your gas cap off and listen at the filler tube while someone turns the key to the "On" position without starting it. If you do hear the pump, change the filter again, if you don't check for the shutoff in the trunk.
