Depending on how hot you got it before you caught it was overheating you could have blown a head gasket and they don't always leak externally you can have spark but if they are soaked in coolant your car isn't going to start. And replacing parts that seem logical is a waste of money if you knew you had fuel pressure or could here your fuel pump priming you shouldn't have changed it same with spark plugs. Take a spark plug out after trying to start the car once and see if it's saturated.

One serious overheat is all you get.
