You let the leaks go too long and now your probably looking at rebuilding or replacing the engine.

Sounds like the motor is shot. Go to a junkyard or get a Jasper rebuild.

The car starts and drives the starter needed to be cleaned of all the oil.. where's the oil coming from

Get a couple of cans of Gunk from the auto supply. Warm up the engine and spray the stuff everywhere, follow the directions on the can. Once the engine is sparkling clean you will be able to see exactly what's causing the oil leak. However, I tend to agree with Tom. A water leak from the engine needs to be fixed ASAP because it leads to more damage and failure in a very short time. You say there is moisture in the crankcase, that's not a good thing. Possibly a head gasket (pricey, tedious but fixable), warped head (very pricey, probably not worth it) or cracked block (not fixable).
