Cracked head or cracked cylinder block is not excluded...but where do you live? Depending on location, engine might be a 1.6, 2.0, diesel..... Add these details in your profile or signature so we do not ask each time you come on this forum.
ALso...why/when did it overheat? The coolant fluid loss could have happened without noticing before it actually overheated....so overheating might be a consequence instead of the cause...

did you check the block and head for straightness correctly? they do warp when overheated and just sanding it won't fix it 90% of the time. Proper measurement and machining will be required.

The head also needs to be pressure tested for cracks, and a the block will require checking as well.
