Q: Car hot, smoke rising under hood on 1993 Toyota Camry

problem began when car ran out of gas. after adding 2 gallons, car started. 15 miles or so down the road, car stalled, check engine light on, battery light came on and gray smoke was pouring from under hood. note-recently, car's dashboard lights were off following "frying" sensor/fuses, but after adding gas yesterday, they came back on. any explanation or connection between these events. mechanic indicates radiator is melted and needs a thermostat before can test head gasket. are we on the right trail. need best advice on what to do. car has 444,000 miles
