Have you looked at the price of a used 2.5? Or a used 4.0 w/tranny?

Welcome to the forum. Depends on how bad it was over heated. Did it crack the block or anything like that? Need more info here to give you advise.

Welcome to the forum. Check the coolant and oil. If they appear to be about the same color and consistancy, then it is either the head gasket is blown or as mentioned above it has a cracked block. Try to give us a little more detail as to what it will or will not do.
