Unhappy car won't start

my 1999 mitsubishi eclipes, spider overheated and now it won't start. i'm not getting any fire to the plugs. i've changed the ignition coil pack, checked my plugs, tested power unit. is there some kind of breaker or something that i'm not finding? i've checked my fuses and they seem ok. all my electrical things like air conditioner, lights, interior panel when turning the key, all work. help!!! any suggestions???

If it overheated that much, you probably blew a head gasket, not good!

You probably got antifreeze in your oil now.

This job is typically not a DIY job.

What happened when it overheated? Did you stop the engine right away or did you drive on? Did the engine shut itself off or did you?
