What Engine in this vehicle? Suggest you remove SP(spark plugs) and crank it over for about 15 seconds with a fully charged battery. That should clear the cylinders of any coolant that entered before the switch of fuel/coolant lines. Check Engine OIL before you restart the Engine. Make sure you do not have contaminated oil in the Engine. Clean ....re-gap....old...or replace SP's.
