I'm sorry to be the bearer of Bad Tidings but it appears either the Cylinder Head is warped or possibly Head gasket blown. I noticed in your brief description you Boiled the engine i.e. took it into the Red Zone Twice.
(Please I'm only trying to suggest possibilities and solutions so I ask Not to take this the wrong way or get annoyed with me I'm only here to help.)
O.k. Is it a 4D51 or 4D56 Diesel engine? Or the Petrol equivalent?
If Diesel? overheated severely this can soften the the piston rings causing Low compression hence poor starting if Petrol then maybe Water is seeping into the Cylinders weakening combustion of the fuel.(You really shouldn't try using/starting as more damage may ensue)
Either way major Surgery is required possibly a little more involved than you are possibly expecting,Before the engine can return to normal you MAY? need to replace Piston rings? after the cylnder head is removed then pressure tested. If o.k skimmed before replacing with New gaskets and all engine fluids.
Again I really am sorry I apologise profusely for not providing a easy quick fix for you? but at least you'll be in the Know and not get riped off by scoundrel Cowboy's.
Good Luck and Hapy New Year!

Mate there is no way to say this
you have stuffed just about everything in your motor valves bearings seals etc.
you might be able to get it rebuilt
the motor will have no compression and no guts i think it is dead by the sounds of it
the red zone normally means bye you should never run a car near the red zone what so ever as this causes so much damage and as you have done it twice the motor has suffered severe damage
my mother did the same thing with her pulsar it ended up the motor was a different shape in side
you most likely need a new motor get a rebuilt one its cheaper and cause its been rebuilt it will be like a new motor

I have a 1963 Chevy stepside with a 327 engin, after reaching running temperature, it wont start

(1)Remove the air cleaner, looking down the primary throttle bore (front) move the throttle at the carburetor. Did you see fuel spray? if so its not a fuel related issue.
(2)Next, check your battery cables. High resistance in a cable (corrosion) will get worse with heat. Heat increases resistance. You may want to replace them depending how old they are. You need to check for condition and security of how they are connected ( good tight, clean connections). Sometimes its difficult to spot corrosion with the plastic insulation on top of the cable. Corrosion is usually at the ends where the bare wire is exposed.
(3) May have a bad starter. My old Ford would crank slow when hot. Found bad cables, but eventually had to replace starter too. Works great now.

Solenoid on my focus is clicking but stater is not turning over. When the bolts are loosen the starter will start the engine. I think the starter needs shimed, but not sure this is the problem.

You are right. Shim it out a little until the starter turns the engine freely. It's a try it and see process. Install shims one at a time because if you shim it out too far it will strip the teeth off the gears in time. Hope this helps.

Changing the starter - tough job or easy

the way it works is there is a starter selenoid that when you turn ur key gives the selenoid power which makes the starter gear kick out to catch ur flex plate which turns the engine over it sounds like the drive gear on the starter is not kicking out as far as fixing it it is a farly simple job a few bolts and wires

04 chevy 2500HD start relay /Circuit braker turns off @ key crank

Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good. Any fuses in the diagram, test for voltage, some are hot all the time, some go hot with the key on.
Use a digital multimeter across battery posts, everything off, the generic spec for a full charge is around 12.6 volts. Leave the leads hooked up to battery, have a helper turn key to crank, how far does it drop? In my opinion it shouldn't drop much under 10 volts, I wouldn't argue with 9.6 volts.

97 jeep wrangler 6cy starts runs well until turned off then will not start for about 2 hours

The most common problem is the starter.
When the engine gets to operating temperature, the starter gets the same temperature because it's mounted next to the engine.
Most solenoids in the starter wear out with age and can't take the heat of the engine anymore.

If it is clicking, the solenoid is activating as it should so there is either a wire loose on the solenoid, a wire loose on the starter motor or the starter motor needs new brushes.
An old trick if the starter motor needs brushes is to hit it with a lump of wood to jar it.

Having problems with turning over......

do you mean engine rolled over or cranked over and would not start?or is it that the starter would just click? or did starter sound like it was wineing and you had to keep on and off the key until it findley started? if any of your answers to thies questions is yes (except first question) its time for a new starter. as far as the grinding noise don't worry about it, that's what makes me believe its the starter. install new starter, problem solved.

I have a 350 chev, motor, put in a new cam and lifters adjusted lifter, set timing .vacume on carb, problem is when i drive the car and turnit off i have to wait till the motor cool down to start .i am...

I have a '81 Firebired that did the same thing with the factory-issued Flintstone-mobile 3.8L V6. Everything but the starter worked correctly: new 185 thermostat, perfect 50-50 coolant misture, no leaks, etc., but still had to wait 1-2 hours for a cool down.

It may be that your original starter is dying. Your starter relay is over-heating and opening the circuit. You can replace the starter and/or buy a pre-made heat shield for the starter or fab one yourself. Regardless, just remember that the goal is to keep the starter as cool as possible.

To prove this is in fact the problem get the engine hotter than usual in your driveway then shut it off. If it won't start cool it down with a bag of ice (don't burn yourself). Should take less than 5 minutes to cool it to start.

Good luck!
