Why is my car not starting after overheating?

The first thing to check is the oil. If there is no oil in the motor, the first thing you want to do is to get some witnesses, hopefully someone (s) who know how to check the oil level. Then have the same person looking under the motor to see if the oil drain plug (or bolt) is still installed on the oil pan. Remember NOT TO ADD NEW OIL to the motor if it has no oil.
If the motor has no oil, make sure you don't start nor drive the car. Contact the shop that supposedly replaced the oil, and make sure that your witnesses back-you up when you need them. Don't let the shop take your car and then tell you that the motor had oil in it.
If the motor has oil in it, then do some of the things other posters have told you to do.

Isuzu truck 2005 oil is getting in to the water

If oil is getting into the water, you have a bad gasket or crack in the block of the motor. The water ports are sealed from the oil ports. You need to check iol to see if water has gotten into it (it will look light brown or foamy in oil.

My car is leaking antifreeze, it got all over the engine, the mechanic is saying that i have compression loss on one side of engine, is this a major problem

yes more than likely you have a blown head gasket if your mechanic said it loss compression on one side of motor than you are only running on half of the motor (to put this in lay men terms this is like u having only one lung or half your heart although human body can run this way a car can not )
also depending on where the head gasket is blown you are more than likely dumping water into oil or visa vesra if you remember back to chemistry class water and oil don't mix oil job in the motor is to lubricate parts which it cant do with water in it on the flip side of coin when oil is in the water the oil clogs the water passages so then the motor cant cool

so if u continue to drive your car this not only are making the motor work twice as hard because only half motor is working it can't lubricate it self or cool it self
I wouldn't recommend driving this car until it fixed
If you continue to drive your car this way you end up with a blown motor instead of just a head gasket

I have oil leaking into my 1990 ford festivas radiator,what could be causing this?Is this a serious problem?

It could be the transmission oil leaking since the transmission fluid goes through the bottom of the radiator to cool off. You may need to replace the radiator. But if it's motor oil then there is a blown gasket on the motor or crack. Look at the motor oil on the dip stick and see if it looks normal or is milky looking indicating that there is also water in your motor. If it's just the radiator then it's not a serious as it is if the water is in the motor. Motor will be damaged with water in it.

Over heating , no water in oil , no oil in water

fan clutch could be bad if it doesnt have electric fans. thermostat could be stuck shut. water pump may be bad s the impeller inside can come loose from the shaft the belt drives. dont drive until fixed as any new motor noise is sign of potential internal motor damage and may lead to engine failure.
