Well it depends on how bad and where.
It could cause the engine to suck coolant into the intake, or coolant could leak out onto the heads.
It could cause a large vac leak on one or more cylinders.

SOURCE: 2000 Malibu keeps running hot.

You replaced the head gasket but did you get the head or heads checked for cracks or check the block for warpage?

SOURCE: Sequence for the push rods

The valves that are furthest from the intake, on the outside perimeter of the head, closest to the spark plugs are small diameter valves. These valves use the short rods. The valves that are [non-uniformly] on the interior of the head use the large diameter valves. These valves use the long push rods. This is not due to the diameter, but do to the proximity of the valve on the head with respect to the rod length required to push it. So, looking at a picture of the "front head," closest to the front of the car, from underneath will verify that diameters are small - large - large - small - large - small. Inspecting from above you should note the order of valves as outside - interior - interior - outside - interior - outside. And if you invert that same head to the "rear head" configuration (180o) it would become small - large - small - large - large - small (outside - interior - outside - interior - interior - outside).

The answer is this:
The rear head (2-4-6) will have push-rods in the following configuration:
short - long - short - long - long - short

The front head (1-3-5) will have push-rods in the following configuration:
short - long - long - short - long - short

Sounds like a head gasket blew out or possibly an intake manifold gasket if that engine has a cooling loop through the intake manifold. Check if oil is white/brown and looks like a milkshake.

If water/coolant is getting into the intake, it is drawn into the cylinders on the intake stoke-if it is not a big leak, you might not see evidence of it in oil for a while, but you eventually will, and the antifreeze will also create problems with crank, rod and cam bearings over time. Installing a new intake gasket should solve your problem, use a straightedge to make sure where the intake mates to the head in the suspected area is flat.

The Grand Marquis's have a know problem that causing overheating. The intake manifold cracks around the water inlet tubes on the intake manifold causing it to loose anti-freeze which in turn causes overheating. Mercury has a beefed up replacement intake manifold that cures the problem. It was a subject of an unannounced recall but they would replace it unless the problem occurs. The recall was for 7 years which the 1999 model wouldn't qualify for now. It happened to me and cost about $450.00 (parts and labor) to fix it. I used a local repair shop to do the work. If, after the engine is hot, you hear water/steam coming from the top of the manifold, you have the problem

Head gasket blown out and it will not start


You answered the second part of your question with the first part. Your car will not start because of the blown head gasket. You'll need to repair the head gasket and any other damage first. Often a blown head gasket is just a symptom of other problems and sometimes it's the cause of other problems.

2000 Grand Am GT: My 2000 grand am is leaking antifreez from behinde...


Hate to tell you but it sounds like you have a blown upper or lower intake manifold gasket. This is a very common problem with these cars. I have had mine replaced twice in 150.000 miles. It has been recalled a couple of times 4 or 5 years ago. Its not a cheap fix it ran me about $800 to have them both replaced. If this is found to be the problem when your having it fixed have the garage working on it flush out the complete cooling system of the Dex-col type anti-freeze so it can be filled with regular anti-freeze when there done. Dex-col anti-freeze is the biggest reason these gaskets fail. It eats through and breaks down the gasket over time. But its best to have a garage flush out the system due to the fact the two types of anti-freeze cant be mixed at all or it will turn to a gummy substance and clog up and ruin water pumps , radiators, and heater cores but flushing the system good will keep from any small amount of Dex col being left in the system. In my opinion the regular anti freeze keeps the engine cooler and is twice as cheap not to mention that its gasket friendly

start to replace pressure cab and bleed the coolant system and fallow coolant lines if any visible leak.
these are the quick check and solve the problem temporary because usually over heat will cause blown head gasket on grand am specially if you have 3.4l.
