SOURCE: Overheated, now won't start
I would pull the plugs and check them for the presence of water beads. Any time an engine overheats severely, there is a good chance of having a blown head gasket and if this happens, when cooling, coolant can be sucked past the breach into one or more cylinders.

Yes, this is most likely a thermostat problem.
As a basic explanation, the thermostat is the device which separates the hot coolant in the engine block from the cool coolant in your radiator. If it gets stuck closed, your radiator coolant will remain at near room temperature, while the coolant in your block (which is what your gauge reads) does not circulate and will skyrocket in temperature.

Testimonial: "Very helpful. Discription makes sense/logical explanation of symptoms."
I just replaced the radiator and thermostat on my 03. The radiator was defective (corroded) on the lip where the cap seals. This allowed coolant to be spat out. The thermostat was also sticking closed after new radiator and this caused overheating. Replace both while in there for under $100 if doing it yourself.
