My KIA has an oil and manifold exhaust leak. Just recently did an oil change and swapped out the spark plugs. She's been starting up just fine all day long until about 5pm tonight. What could be my problem?

Are you having trouble cranking the engine? Is it cranking over faster than usual? Or, cranks as always did but just wont seem to catch. If it cranks but wont start, do you hear the fuel pump run when you turn the key on before cranking? Are any fuses blown? Is there fuel in the tank? If you have a manual trans, are you pressing the clutch pedal hard enough when attempting to crank the engine? You see I need to know exactly what you experienced at about 5pm that night!
