I am in need of help. My husband ran my car very hot. It blew my Thermosta t housing into two pieces. N broke my timing belt. I had to tear my motor
down n replace all my gaskets thermostat housing n my Thermostat and my tim ing belt. N my piston rings. I cleaned everything up n changed my oil n pu t my car back together. Took me awhile to find out how to set my timing. B ut got everything done. I tried cranking my car and all it will do is spin over. It isn't getting any fire to my spark plugs or getting any gas.

Without being there, it sounds like you have a timing problem, the cams are not closed when they are supposed to be. I don't know your particular Ford, but other brands of dual overhead cam engines must use a special tool to hold the cams in the correct positions else the timing will not be set. Your symptom is that the timing is not set.
Personally, my instinct is that the car got hot because the t-stat housing blew, it did not blow the housing because it got hot. Your husband was at the helm, but I doubt he did anything that would kill the engine. My guess is that the engine simply took that particular moment to die.
With all of that carnage, did you consider the possibility that the head is cracked or that there are other fatal conditions that went unnoticed?
