Hello Scotty and Community

My 98 tercel overheated due to waterpump failure, it went past the H in the temperature gauge while I was driving but I dont know how much time passed while driving in that condition.

Left it cool down and started/ ran as far as I can tell pretty normal. My question is, is it possible the engine got damaged in anyway? Thanks!

I already solved the problem that made it over heat, my concern is if the engine could of suffered internal damages that maybe I could check for. Thanks

That "H" is there for a reason. Yes, it can definitely damage engine. Do this first: https://youtu.be/evpaTW2WJ5Y
