If it has no compression it can be head gasket , cracked head or the rings are soft and not sealing
which ever , the seller knew of the problem of overheated /cooked motor
at worst you are up for a replacement motor

Im having issues starting a 2005 Volvo xc70 after a MINOR FRONT END COLLISION

First, you didn't seal it. It got hot... How hot is the problem. Blown head gaskets would be the least of the problem. Trashed engine would be worse case. First is to have a cylinder compression test done. Check oil and make sure no coolant made it to the crank case.

When the engine shut off on the way home it was because it was too hot. The boiling that you see is compression leaking into the water jackets. You have most likely blown the head gasket or even warped or cracked the head. The car has to go to a shop and be checked out. A pressure test and compression test are a good place to start, but chances are the engine will have to be taken apart to find the true extent of the damage. Hope this helps.

check for compression on all cylinders if you ran the engine hot to long you may have blown the head gasket another way you would know is by filling up the radiator with water and then with the cap off turn the starter like if your going to start the engine if you see the water jump out of radiator then you have a blown gasket another way is by checking the oil if it looks like coffee with milk then the gasket is blown, I hope this information is useful good luck
