If it wont crank, you will need to have the concern diagnosed with a scan tool. preferably a vw scan tool at the dealer. the reason it overheated is becuase the water pump impeller is broken or stripped out and is free-wheeling on the pump shaft.

    wait i meant to say if it wont crank you probably have a bad starter. but if it DOES crank then you need it to be diagnosed with the scan tool etc.

Overheated. Why won't it start?


I'm not really familiar with JEEP mechanics but if you've replaced your water pump and it's still overheating with full water/coolant level, you should check the thermostat; when it fails, it's a common cause or overheating in all kind of cars

I'm attaching some links to Youtube tutorial about replacing thermostat in a Jeep but you can expand your Google search using terms

See if you can turn the engine crankshaft by using a socket wrench. If you can't turn it, the engine is seized due to overheating.

Replaced starter now overheating and won't start


All you did was replace the starter and all of a sudden it overheats and wont start? were there any symptoms before the starter got replaced? the starter should have nothing to do with it overheating, maybe not starting, but not overheating. have you checked the thermostat to make sure it isn't stuck closed? or a possible coolant leak?

Jeep was overheating, Now leaking transmision fluid and won't start


I don't see how leaking transmission fluid would be connected to the engine overheating, unless the radiator blew up.
You'll need to figure out why it won't start to proceed.
Check for spark and fuel pressure, and of course compression.
Is the check engine light on ?

My 1998 chevy malibu wont start after overheating with smoke why


If the engine was overheated, you most likely have a cracked cylinder head and/or a blown head gasket. The reason it won't start is because there is angine coolant getting in the combution chambers. (You cannot run the engine on antifreeze)
