Truck still won't start after replaceing the radiator.

My 2001 chevy s-10 2.2 won't start . It ran hot and the left side of the radiator had a crack in the plastic resivore. So i went and bought a new radiator and put in coolant but it still won't start. What is wrong with it. It has compression and wants to fire but won't start. I've checked all the relays and fuses. No gasket problems. Please help.

    So was the truck running before the radiator change and you shut the truck off....swapped parts and then it would not restart?

Ran 99 chevy express hot won't start even with a

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.

To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

My chevy s10's radiator blew I replaced it... Drove about 8 miles home. Truck sat overnight. Drove about 10 miles the next day and it wouldn't start back up. The dealership says it's either a blow head...

the head could be cracked also. check the oil if its milky then its the head gasket or head probably. if no then when its running is there alot white smoke that also could be a cracked head or head gasket.the first is antifreeze leeking into the oil system usually cracked head. the second is antifreeze leeeking into the cylinder
so no external leek

2001 4.3L chevy s10 running hot

You still might have you see curculition through the radiator?,but here is what I want you to do,take the overflow hose frome the radiator,find you a clear pop bottle fill with water stick the hose in there and start the engine and see if you have bubbles( your rad cap have to be on and sealed) If you do your getting compresion in your coolant system,which means you have a blown head gasket,or a cracked head, also you must make sure temp is up to for this test,

1994 Chevy Silverado temperature guage shows hot

Flushing the radiator, replacing the radiator cap, adding new coolant, replacing the sensors and a new thermostat solved the problem. Probably didn't need to do all of these things - but since we just purchased the truck, and given the fact that is probably hadn't been done in a while, we chose to do all of these things (which really didn't cost a whole lot), it's running like a charm now.
