Re: rover 216 coupe
The honda engine in the rover suffered from the amplifier module in the distributor going faulty. Remove dist cap ans rotor arm, underneath you will see a small square box with 5 wires onto it, if i remember, its held in with 2 screws. remove this and replace with new .

Year make and model ?
It takes spark, fuel, and compression at the right time for an engine to run. So you are probably missing one or more of these three things.
Have you checked compression on all cylinders ? Is the cam timing correct ? Do you have fuel and spark ?
Have a compression test done as it may be a head gasket and not cracked. Anyway the cheapest and most reliable procedure here is to have the job done professionally by a shop that specialises in Honda, Get a service exchange head is the answer and you should be back on the road in a day.
After so many over heats.a car sometimes cant handle. after constant over heating your cars rubber gaskets could have gone bad and turned brittle letting in oil into spark plug well #1 for your spark plug problem i would recommend changing your valve cover gaskets. and for the over heating and not turning on. i believe you blew a head gasket.
buy your self a haynes manual and a older rover 216 from a scrapyard for the engine K series ,better still if your country laws allow and thats to get hold of the honda engine from a rover or honda the rover with the honda engine and swop it over for the honda engine then it will run forever and a day but the original engine is prone to faults blamable on the head gasket when in fact its a engine with wet liners and the bottom seal goes so everyone who doesnt know how to check the liner height blames the head gasket ,Lot of unskilled mechanics about who are only oil changers in reality who are only too willing to charge you the earth for junk repairs but then iam biased as i always seem to end up putting their work right .
if it's sluggish and bucking and there may or may not be a check engine light on, it's probably in need of spark plugs, wires, and / or ignition coil packs. also if it overheated, it may have blown the a head gasket or two. at least take it to a good land rover dealer and have a multi point inspection done. ive worked on a lot of discos where theyve needed a water pump, head gaskets, throttle heater and gasket, new coolant lines, front main seal, just for starters.... most just get a complete engine reseal where we take the entire engine out and put all new gaskets in it. at least a $2,000 job for the customer. it may be time to look for a good deal on it as a trade in.
Check for possible water in oil, also remove radiator cap and start engine does water want to pump out of radiator, is there white smoke coming out of tail pipe, if yes to any of those blown head gasket, if not sure yet remove spark plugs crank engine over is there any coolant coming out of spark plug holes, if yes blown head gasket, and last have a block test any repair shop can do this.Good luck
As you've got spark the engine must be turning over, otherwise you wouldn't know.... You say that the starter just clicks and the battery is new....If the engine is turning, what do you mean....
If you have spark and fuel and the engine is turning, you've got another problem.....but one that's related.....The most likely, especially if you carried on until the engine became so hot, it stopped you!....the cylinder head gasket has blown....Check the oil and see if it's turned a milky grey colour.....If it has....cylinder head and or gasket....but that's not the end....You may have seized rings or seals....Is it a rotary engine?... With engines these days, the operating temp is much higher, part of falling in with emission controls.....the down side..... if it over heats, much more damage.....Check the compression and see if there's leakage.
