Your water pump may have seized up which in turn snapped your timing belt. That is exactly what happened to my 2001 Dodge stratus. You can crank it all you want. If the timing belt has snapped it won't turn over. I thought it was overheating do to a bad thermostat. Imagine my surprise when we found out the timing belt was gone and the water pump was seized. Cost over 500.00 to fix it. You may have also bent some valves when the timing belt snapped.

Most likely the pistons are seized in their bores. Probably will require a rebuild, or a replacement. (Find a good used one in a junk yard. Usually you'll get a better price; most will offer some guarantee.) And don't let this one run out of water!

Not necessarily. I actually just overheated my air-cooled engine the other day. First, are you sure it is water-cooled? If so then more than likely you will need to replace certain parts in the engine such as piston, piston ring, etc. Or it would be cheaper to just buy a new engine.
