the non start could be a battery or a starter motor problem have you tried to jump start the car?, where is the gunge coming from, the resivoir or is it being sprayed into that area of the engione from some where else, any signs of the gunge anywhere else?

there could be air getting into the steering causing back pressure and the gunge overflow, are you certain that water has not been added by mistake and both the tops are yellow.
