You need to have it checked by a mechanic! It sounds like the engine got so hot, which is why it died, that the engine is now damaged and needs major repairs. Running an engine while it is overheating causes irreversable engine damage. So if you car is running hot or overheating shut it off right away and seek help or repair before the damage can occur.

Car had ignition coil replaced for 2nd time in a year


The crank sensor is causing the car to die. When it gets hot the resistance builds up and it will not read the crank signal. Then the car will die. When it cool the sensor will read again. You wont get spark if the crank sensor is not reading the ecm doesnt see the signal and will not allow the coil to fire.
