You've probably warped the head and therefore the motor is unable to achieve any compression due to the air escaping out. If you're lucky, it's a machining and replace head gasket; if unlucky, you've done your motor. You've most likely got a blown head gasket. This would have caused overheating as the problem began and worsened, and the no start/lack of compression now. along with head gasket check timing more than likely jumped time if the belt is still good this causes no compression

1993 Mazda Protege you have just started has intermittent stalling issues with the car sounds as if it is not getting gas then it sits after about 10 mins and fires up It stalled on after stopping?

I have a '93 Protege DX that was having this same problem. I found that if you pull the top off the airbox and clean the sensor inside the problem goes away. Also make sure that the airbox and all lines coming from it are secure and have no leaks.
