Default Over heated + No start + engine clatter

My Friend just got a GC8 and we were just out driving when the engine began to clatter and then overheated and died. The res is full and was bubbling over but the oil is clean but it won't start just turns over. Any thoughts on where to start?

Do not discount blown head gasket. Subies blow cardboard HG without getting coolant in oil or vice versa.

Refill coolant. fully bump coolant system and then use a coolant gas tester while the engine is running to determine if you have exhaust gas in your coolant.
