The radiator hose ruptured and spewed fluid all over the engine compartment. After parking the car, replacing the hose, and adding coolant, the car wouldn't start. Only after checking all electrical contacts, testing the starter and battery did we have luck getting it to turn over. After about 15 minutes of cranking. However, if you let off the gas it dies in about 30 seconds. Been able to get it to turnover 3 times, but no luck keeping it going. Thoughts on next steps?
Do you

There is a posibility that when ever your hose busted it spewed fluid into your breather and then into your carb supposing you have a carb and then from there it got mixed with your gas if you got alot in there then that could explain that if you think that is a posibility I would suggest draining out as much as posibly

best of luck
