has it been eating coolant for a while?
if the coolant seals fried it was only a matter of time before the motor stopped working.
i hope you know that it's bad for a rotary engine to sit for too long because the seals go bad after a while
if the battery doesnt charge while the car runs, alternator went to shit.

well i have some fairly good news, i dont think its the coolant, i think its the fuel pump and filter are bad for sitting for a year, i think i just m ight of split some coolant while i was pouring it in
