You may have blown the head gasket. An 'OVERheat condition' can cause the engine head to 'warp' and burn the gasket causing combustion chamber leakage between two or more cylinders (lost compression). In order for the engine to 'RUN', it must be able to 'COMPRESS' the air-fuel mixture to get ignition/combustion to produce the power stroke.

A compression test and/or a 'leak-down' test would reveal this (if in fact this has occurred). If it hasn't, something else is causing the 'NO START' condition.

My honda ballade 160i tempreture gauge always go up bt the engine heat,water is normal.the fan smetimes does nt stop.even whn engine is off.

A fan running after switching the engine off is normal for some cars as this prevents overheating and the fan should cut off after a while. Only if it is still running long after switching the engine off is there any cause for concern.

Does the vehicle start?
If not, then check battery voltage. If below 12.5 volts, then recharge the battery and retest system charging voltage (should be around 14 volts)
If battery is fine and vehicle starts, then check fuse box and wiring loom connectors.

Radiator fan doesnt switch off.

Many vehicles are set up to run the radiator(/ac condenser) fan whenever the air conditioning is on. Might this be the case here - is the air conditioning on when on the open road? Just a thought.

2000 plymouth breeze 2.4 jumped timing and now leaking antifreeze.

that would'nt make any difference to water pressure! may be possible that your vehicle was overheating! overheating caused excessive pressure in the system, which popped(The noise you heard) one of the hoses, or a connection!

If it starts getting overheated right after being started cold and it's full of coolant the therostate may be stuck shut. If it has to run awhile and be under load the radfitor may be dirty or the coolant dirty or badly mixed. the raditor where the air goes thought it may need to be cleaned. If you have to sit still but if you k moving it's Okay then the fan ( It's electric) may not be coming on. You can turn the fan with your hand isee that it will turn ( they lock up) or you may have seen it running and know that this is'nt it. Itb shoud blow hard though and if it does'nt the high speed fan relay might be bad or the main fan fuse blown. If the fuse is blown the fan motor is likly to be bad evcen if it runs with a new fuse as the fuse blows as the motor heats up and draws more power.
