Sounds like the cooling system needs to be flushed. Any decent corner gas station can do it and it shouldn't take much more than an hour and a half.. A "reverse flush" would be best if you can get it.

Overheated now won t start

Do a compression test or cylinder leakage test to check if the head gasket is blown. Looks like it blew on the water side. Or it could be that it overheated so badly that it could have collapsed the rings.. But if its not turning over means water got into the cylinders and seized up the piston. Remove the plugs and have a looks with bore scope for water ingress

I have replaced everything I can think of to do with cooling the engine. The radiator , thermostat, water pump , and hoses but its still overheating

Check for water in the oil. A faulty headgasket can lead to overheating. It'll look like a light brown frothy foam above the oil line on your dipstick. It can also accumulate inside the oil filler cap.

After a long drive the overflow tank for the radiator leaked out a bunch of thick rust colored goop. Engine didn't show it was running hot though. I did have a problem with the heat this past winter,...

The thick rust stuff is your coolant. And a load of dissolved cooling system.

I think you'll find that after a long run, your engine overheated slightly, coolant expanded and had to go somewhere.

Your thermostat could do with a good look at, maybe also the water pump, perhaps changing (It is 10 years old now) and if its all a mucky brown, your coolant isn't doing its job properly, could do with renewing.

I have water mixing with oil and they say it is not my head.

Most likely, it is one of the two head gaskets.
Possibly could be a cracked engine block, but not likely.

What are the symptoms?
White smoke coming from the exhaust pipe?
Overheating engine?
Radiator eruptions?
White goop on oil dipstick?

Please let us know..... (comment)

Very high idle at start, slowly idles down after hot. Replaced ICV, sometimes lopes, can shut down, restart, idles right.

change fuel filter. add can of SEAFOAM(parts store) to 1/2 tank of PREMIUM gas. let car idle 3-5 minutes. drive hard at least 10 miles.<p>
you have what I call Ethanol Gas Syndrome. the ethanol gets in your system adds water and turns fuel to brown goop, it also carbonizes valves,injectors, and emission parts.<p>
you might want to change f filter after 500 miles(again). add SF every 3-5000 miles, and this will clean the carbon; fix the gas and fuel system, and dry the water. good luck.

Overheating and no ac , replaced coolant fan didnt help

Headgasket may be blown. Try using the Goop found at local auto centre "Liquid Coolant Sealant"
Issue you are having is carbons leaking into the coolant tank is causing additional "BOIL" almost like blowing extremely hot air into water... Causing it to boil.
Your A/C is alone part of your Blower Fan, a completely different element to the cooling system, and you will need to recharge your AC
Try the goop. It really does work!!

Just had a gas refill, no acceleration ck eng light

change fuel filter. If you have someone local, have them run a fuel sytem clean out on your car. Then add a can of Seafoam to your fuel. It is all about the ethanol goop problem that are causing all the problems on these cars. it fills the system up with water, and turns to gas into a brown syrup. but every 3000 miles(after this). if you add Seafoam to your car, it will keep the lines clean, break up the goop, and your car will not have line freeze up this winter. good luck
