Car won't start after replacing radiator hose

Asked by Jul 03, 2013 at 06:46 PM about the 2007 Chrysler Sebring Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My brackets on my radiator hose broke this morning, and the hose came loose. Needless to say the car got hot, but not long enough to burn the engine (I would say maybe for about 1 min it was past the halfway mark on the thermometer), as soon as the alarm started going off I turned off the car. My dad replaced the hoses and bracket, and now the car will turn over but won't start. Engine is 2.4L 4 cyl. Help!

Did the engine compartment get really wet from coolant? Could have damaged some electrical components. Does it have good compression? Still could have blown a head gasket, temperature senders don't work correctly if not in coolant, engine could have been hotter than gauge reading.
