Sounds like the head gasket may have blown or other internal damage has occurred. This is causing a compression issue between cylinders or lack of compression.
I would ask if there are any engine codes associated with this malfunction, in case there is a sensor that got damaged when the engine overheated.

Like Ron says,timing chain is possibility,usually only above 150,000 though it can happen sooner.
I'm wondering if it has a crankshaft position sensor?
