Sounds like a blown head gasket, bad intake gasket, or cracked head. HTH. -Jim

Water or moisture build up? In the radiator or oil pan? Any liquid coming out exhaust? How much water? A cracked intake manifold could be letting water into cylinders and thus getting your plugs wet and no sparks. Did you by chance not have enough anti freeze and it froze and then cracked something?
