    Wont start or wont crank as in engine WON'T spin over? If so, do not try to start anymore, may damage engine if liquid locked from head gasket leak! Can pull spark plugs to see which cyl. affected but be carefull may still be under some pressure! Just have seen this whole scenario before on this GM engine, may not be applicable here!
