If your vehicle has overheated it is very possible that head gasket or head damage has occurred. I would recommend having the engine thoroughly inspected as well as pressure tested to determine if any coolant leaks exist. I would also make sure to wait until the vehicle cools down before attempting to start the vehicle again to avoid any further damage to the vehicle. If it has been determined that the engine has overheated and cylinder head damage has occurred I would recommend not driving the vehicle at all as it is very likely that it will break down. If you need assistance, a certified YourMechanic technician can be dispatched to your location to inspect your vehicle's overheating issue.
