ok scotty i am baffled on this one last winter i forgot to put antifreeze in i guess i cracked the radiator when it got be low 32 degrees i drove it to the store and back it started to steam up from the hood so i stopped put some jb weld on sealed the leak i thought waited 2 days drove again steam came back checked the water reservoir it was empty i put some water in drove it for another 8 miles then it died mid drive pulled on to side of road left it had it towed to my house went to go store bought a new radiator installed it went to go start truck all i herd was clicking noise like dead battery or bad starter so a checked both of them they was fine would not start for nothing or crank at this point in time i waited a couple days thinking maybe the block some how got frozen so i waited 2 days i put the truck in the garage let it defrost after a couple days went to go start it it acted like it was going to start but all i would get is endless cranking no turn over then i check to see if i was getting spark no spark at all i proceeded to check my coil packs no problems there i replaced the crank position sensor then tried to start it up still nothing but endless crank i checked the block for cracks thinking maybe the ice freezing the block could have cracked it witch would have cused loss of pressure in the cylinders or maybe hydro-static lock but both heads had equal pressure after that i started thing think maybe bad wiring from the steam damaged them i check the ECM and all my fuses all good at this poitn i only have 1 thoery it could have jumped time and the timing belt fell off i dunno please help with any ideas its a ford Ranger 2002 edge v6 automatic

do a wet and dry compression test of the engine first, if bad, engine will need rebuilding
