No it didn't overheat I drove it for about ten mins my neighbor said he thinks it might be the timing belt but I'm not sure when I turn the key it turns over but sounds kinda weak thanks for the reply

The timing belt wouldnt fail while sitting, but likely would while cranking to start up again. Typically people around here notice the change in sound when it snaps.

If I heard it, I could almost definitely tell you if the timing belt went. Else, it's just a few timing cover bolts to get yourself a 100% confident answer on that. When I asked about the history, timing belt maintenance is the main thing I was suspecting had been skipped. Compression was for timing or warped motor mating surfaces.
