great response, But try jump starting it first and play engine is not seized. GM engines aren't what they used to be

With key off - put a socket on the crank pulley bolt and check to see if the engine seized - sounds like it maybe since you overheated it - IF the engine isn't seized AND you have a FULLY CHARGED battery with good connections - put an ammeter on the starter cable and crank it - if the reading is over 200 amps you need another starter - that said, starters don't die just because you overheat your engine so maybe it's coincidence
