Ok good news! My mechanic called and said after a few days of drying out (antifreeze from boil over) engine began to show signs of life and slowly turned over and started...he thinks there is a sensor that got wet and shut down starting system...got the car back and its running great! I knew I didnt run it long enough hot to damage the engine.. -
