Question about Cars & Trucks
If the oil cooler line blew, the oil would have been pumped out quickly. Chances are especially with a GM product...The engine is seized. Sorry

can you hear the fuel pump kick on when you turn the key on but without crancking the engine? Generally the fuel pump will prime for about two to three seconds when you first turn the key on. if you don't hear it that's probably the culprit. If you do hear it it may be a bad pump. also should check to see if you have spark. You can do this by removing a plug wire and using another spark plug. Ground the plug to somthing metal and have someone crank the engine (making sure you are not touching the plug or metal) You should see a spark while cranking. Good luck

Testimonial: "I appreciate the ideas. I will definitely check those suggestions. Thank you so much"
It's tough to diagnose a car reading just a few lines online. First off you need to check if your fans were not working which cause the overheating. If you overheated the car to the point where the needle reached the red zone, you most likely have a bent head (since our heads are aluminum) and need to be heated back into shape at a shop. You might not be able to initially start the car due to the "coolant temp sensor" being messed up by this. Change out the thermostat too since that is a cheap replacement. You will also need to check to see if you blew your head gasket. You can check by leaving the radiator cap off and filling the coolant to the top. Then starting the car and see if the coolant starts bubbling and starts to decrease in volume. Depending on how much was involved in the damage, it may not be worth fixing this. I spent a fortune. Hope this helps!

you have a coolant leak somewhere ! check the intake manifold gaskets for leaking, the water pump maybe leaking out of relief hole on bottom of pump. make sure the coolant recovery tank is not leaking. look very carefully and you will find it.
