I’ve fixed pipe put coolant in and it won’t start I also noticed it had no oil in it I’m guessing this is due to no coolant so guess it’s overheated and I’ve done some serious damage as it won’t start now turns over starts and cuts within seconds I’m totally lost now think I need to get a professional out joys of mothering eh

Pull the plugs and check to see if there is any milky liquid.
