Question about Cars & Trucks
Very likely she has blown out the head gasket. If the motor lost a lot of cooling fluid, that is the most logical cause.
A leaking head asked will press out all cooling fluid.
Not the overheating caused damage to the head gasket, but the other way around. The leaking gasket, caused the overheating.

Most likely the belt and pulleys are shiny if you look at them, replace the belt, while you have the belt off try and clean the glaze off the pulley groves, this will make the new belt "grip" better and avoid slipage.

check all your relays with an ohmeter to make sure they all operate. A code would go off usually only if it is an electrical problem. If you are getting fuel and fire, and no codes it is most likely a relay. If you did have codes then I would say sensor. So check those relays

on each headlamp assembly, there will be either one or two plastic nuts that you can turn.
If you only have one nut on each, that will adjust the vertical aim of the headlights.
If you have two nuts on each, one will adjust the vertical and the other will adjust the horizontal.
Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)
If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

Pour some SAE 30 Engine Oil through spark plug hole. No more than a table spoon. It will seal the rings temporarily. Repeat the compression test. If it will be low, then you have bad exhaust valve. If will increase then might be frozen (stuck) ring.
