Question about 1998 Ford Windstar
If it ran hot when the water pump went out, it may have melted some of the interior parts and so ruined the engine. As it was driven on, it probably blew the head gasket. You may fix it simply by replacing the head gasket or you may need a complete engine overhaul, depending on how hot it got and how much damage was done. The only way to know for certain is to go into the engine to assess the damage.

ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.
