Hey Bandito, You must be having one hell of a day I suspect. :):).
RELAX! I'm sure it's nothing serious!
I not sure how you checked to see if the motor was getting fuel but I really don't think that's the problem.
I'm sure that the problem is water/antifreeze got into your distributor. You might want to either take the distributor cap off & blow dry the distributor or just let it dry over-night & try starting it 2moro. Also check the fuse panel under the hood for blown fuses. If none are found, leave the cover of the fuse panel off to let the moisture evaporate.
FYI- The main fuel relay for your car is right above the hood release lever under the dash. It's secured by 1 or 2 bolts. It's very hard to find. So look closely! The relay will either be gray, brown or black & is abt 2.5 inches wide.
Hope this helps. Good luck!
