If your engine ran hot and now has a loud ticking noise what happened?

Either there is not enough electricity into the engine to start it or the engine us worn out and it is unable to spin. (It would go up to half way and come right back down causing the noise) Solution: Get a car check in order to improve the situation or change engines
