I was driving along and I started to notice my car 97 sedan with D15B engine started to backfire, struggled to rev and was smoking blue smoke. Then it stalled.

Turns out the pipe to the aicv broke off and I lost most of my coolant. (didnt notice the gauge)

Anway I have repired the pipe.

I have repired the pipe and there is no more loss of coolant and the engine seems to run fine. The sparkplug leads have melted into the spark plug wells so I need to pick them out and replace them. (more backfire and wont rev when engine up to temp)

The engine seems to be fine although I am worried about it. Any checks I can check? I have never overheated this badly before.
