Why won't 1994 Cavalier start after having overheated turns over but will not start?

There is no water or metal shavings in the oil will take a closer look at the wires Can not do compression test What did you mean by plug the plug depending on how overheated it was will lead to an answer. Check the wires around the motor, see if any have been melted/broken causing a short. The other things are blow head gasket, warped head, cracked block. If you know how you can do a wet and dry compression check. the other thing to look for is to plug the plug, crank the motor to see if water is on top of the piston.. hope it helps. duboff

How do you tell if your radiator is clogged?

some cooling systems, you can check by removing the radiator cap when the water is cool. Then crank the vehicle and let it run until it reaches operating temp. If the water reaches or exceeds operating temp with no flow seen inside of the radiator, it could possible mean that your cooling system is clogged. Also a good indication is if there is rust deposits around the filler neck on the radiator.
