SOURCE: engine lost power then stopped
Check your radiator and see if you have oil in it by what you are describing it sounds like you got it to hot and possibly blew a head gasket.....this vehicle has a low indicator oil switch if your lucky and havent blown gasket try adding oil to required level and then start this will also confirm if head gasket is blown by the presence of the oil lookin like coffee with alot of cream....Good Luck...Please rate so it helps with future diagnostics .....Thank you

If the smoke is white, or steam it is water. you might have cracked the head or warped it. Did you get it looked at before you put the new gasket on? If the smoke is black then it is oil. Do a compression check and see if you don't have a bad cylinder. They should all be about the same give or take 5 lbs.
