It might be the coolant spraying onto the ignition components. Wipe and dry them up and see if it will start. If not, you have something else going on like you suspected. Stop in a local auto repair shop since you have to get it running. Good Luck!

everything with ignition is dry .. i fear the temp sensor was so close to the hole that the air kept it from telling me the car was overheating ..but again no signs that i cracked the block. and shouldnt you still be able to start your car even with a blown head gasket ..
