Starting issue

Well 2 days ago a low coolant popped up so I was 5 minutes away from a pep boys so I bought some coolant poured it in at the parking lot. Then when I was on my way home and the car ran hot. Pulled over and the coolant was all over the floor. Checked the coolant reservoir and it was clear. Steam came out of it and it was bubbling. I got to take it home and took it slow and locally so I maintained the temperature. All the hoses were good nothing was broken,cracked, etc. came down to it being the water pump. Swapped it today. Now it was time to take it out of my yard. Started up fine and when I parked it up front of my house it shut right off. Everything seems to come out fine. I have no idea what it can be. Did I do anything wrong in the process of installing the water pump ?

Will it turn over but just won't run, or it won't even turn over?

What do you mean by turn over. If you mean by cranking yeah it cranks. But sadly no start.

Turn over = cranks
Have you tried to dump the codes yet?

Here is a list of things to check for if it cranks but doesn't start.
Cranks OK, but No Start Checklist for Fuel Injected Mustangs | Mustang Forums at StangNet

No I haven't actually. Would it be that I should keep cranking until coolant starts to run thru. Because I drained everything out.

May check to make sure you did pull a connector off or accadently unplug something while working on the pump

Check to see if you cut or lost your timing spout...
