You won't have flooded it. it's injection

The head gasket is gone FFS

Your temp keeps going up, overheating, missfires.

All the symptoms

he did say that it sounded like it wanted to start so my guess is that it is turning over. check to see if theres a light flashing on your dash (yellow ecu one) if thats the case immobiliser, have you dropped your keys recently?

You can flood and borewash a EFi.. Happens all the time when people fire up a car, move it then turn it back off again.
