First I would find out what the lquid is. Try pulling a plug and see if the fluid ignites using a lighter on the plug.

Just smell it....gas is pretty obvious, if it smells sweet its most likely antifreeze...oil is black....Dexcool is brownish. Its better to be safe than sorry, keep fire AWAY from any fuel.... I hope Im wrong but taking a guess you may have a blwn headgasket and coolant has made its way into a cylinder(s) and hydrolocked the engine which is why it turned over when you pulled the plugs...good luck.

it wont turn over unless the plugs are out. sounds like a cracked block. and there is so much fluid in a cylinder that it cant turn. but you would deff see that much coolant coming out when a plug is out.
