So I literally just had the same problem. I came out from church and my car would start. Everything seemed in order...it just wouldn't engage the starter. I tried everything until I went under the hood and began pulling fuses, it was the 20 amp 'horn stop' fuse was blown...I replaced it and immediately my alarm started going off...then blew the 20 amp I put in...replaced it with a 30amp and then disarmed with the key in the door...car started right up.

That is the transmission cooler in the radiator. Two lines connect to the transmission to circulate the fluid thru the bottom of the radiator. Tighten the fittings

The ignition switch sends voltage through a fuse and maybe a relay, through t switch in the transmission (or clutch) that checks the gear to the starter solenoid which clicks. That's the sound of the solenoid connecting large contacts that can handle the large amount of current needed to start the car.

What part of that scenario is missing? Can you hear the click? Is the linkage, clutch or their corresponding switches activating/bad?

There can also be a click if there's a relay, but usually the click from the start solenoid is usually loud enough that you'd hear it. The large solenoid contacts get burnt in time and it needs to be replaced; even though they're large they get burnt from carrying such a heavy current through them.

Sounds like a cracked head. Or possibly a bad head gasket.
Either one of these would explain water coming out of tailpipe.

The fuel pump is inside the gas tank. You have to remove the tank to access the pump.

Check while idling in park. Smell to see if fluid smells burnt. Replace if it does.
