Lets see. The oil went out the drain plug you forgot to tighten. You did not
tighten the filter. You only put one quart in. The drains in the cylinder
heads are stopped up and all the oil is trapped up there. Some 5.0's blow
out the valve cover gasket in the front. The gasket is two pieces glued
together. When this happens you don't see a lot of oil leaking out. But when
you put oil in, it runs out and down the front of the engine.
What any of this has to do with it not starting is beyond me. Unless someone
stole it, drove the p*ss out of it, sized it up and pushed it back.
