I would start by having your battery tested at an Autozone or Oreilly's. It could also be a bad starter. Autozone can test your starter to see if it is bad. The battery is easy to transport in a friend's car. You would have to bring the car if you want to test the starter. This could involve paying for a tow. If I were you, I would find a reputable mechanic. The mechanic can do a diagnostic to tell you exactly what you are dealing with. I hope it is just a battery or a starter. Fixing something worse than that could cost way more than the car is worth.
First thing you need to know is if the starter has voltage, and if the engine crankshaft can turn. If the starter has voltage and a good ground, the battery is fully charged, and the crank can be turned by moving the alternator belt, the starter may have died. If the oil was on the outside of the spark plugs your valve cover seals may be leaking.
Sounds like possibly a shorted or sulfated battery to me. I would replace it, especially if it is four years old or mor. Also check all of your battery connections and cables to verify that they are clean and tight (BOTH ends of the cables).
The key switch went bad in my 88 Honda DX.I found out the problem quite by accident.Try playing with the switch very carefully and see if it will start for you! Yes the engine will spin buy it will not feed the coil so it will start.Good Luck!
thermostat housing right top of the starter probably you drain all that coolant on it or damage some cables on starter check the cables and connection on starter and get electric parts cleaner from part stores and clean it up..
