Re: my 91 eagle talon overheated then ceased
It may have gotten hot enough to fuse the pistons to the cylinder walls. Loosen up all of the belts going to the harmonic balancer and hook a socket to it. Try to turn it in a clockwise fashion. If it doesn't turn, your engine is seized and will be a total loss. If it turns, some other problem exists.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Is the temp guage reading high or are you just suspecting it needs to cool down? Could be thermastat bad or possible water temp sensor bad. Maybe water pump. After next time you run the car for awhile carefully touch the radiator cap and should be hot, if not then coolant is not circulating.
Just an idea, but I think that you are onto something with the temperature sensor. If overheating was the cause of the head gasket to go, then I would imagine it would've fried the temperature sensor also. That would make it nearly impossible to start. The sensor should be fairly cheap enough to replace. Probably wouldn't even through out a code. My Mother-in-Law had the same problem with her Saturn, changed the temp. sensor and BINGO. No more problem. You just have to make sure you get the computer temperature sensor, not the fan temp. sensor. There are 2 of them suckers. Believe it or not. Hope this can help "with your idea". Best wishes.
