Probably blew your intake manifold gasket that would cause the antifreeze to enter the intake also a blown head gasket would cause the same symptoms as to the module I'm not sure could be the computer or the abs pump

I have taken a picture of the fuse panel diagram and can send it to anyone if given an email address. Photo is to large to upload here and I don't know how to shrink it!

Worked on these for years. Get an ohm meter and check each coil. I would start there. If a resistance is different from the other two then that could be it. If you see rust that is a bad wire and coil too.

with someone trying to start the car hit the fuel tank and if it starts then the fuel pump is bad. also check to make sure all electrical connections were reconnected after the intake.

The pump is only suppose to work for a few seconds with key on/engine off. This primes the fuel system. then it runs when cranking and as engine runs. With key on it should, however, build up pressure and then shut off. Only real way to tell what is going on is use of a test guage often available at parts store loan-a-tool items. Shop manual will tell you correct pressure at key on and when running. Wrong pressure (low) can be bad pump, filter, regulator, relay or leaky injectors and other leaks. Very common for pump in tank to fail and often it will draw excess curent first damaging the relay.

these cars are known for bad ignition switches

...when the cable has broken to the hood latch. I am assuming this is what you mean. If working the hood release from inside the car doesn't do the trick then you are going to have to try and pop the release from outside at the front of the car. You're gonna have to fire up your ingenuity and figure it out 'cause how you do this is different for every car out there. A quick search came up with this:

Do some internet sleuthing; you'll find lots of suggestions.

Did the handle break? Use a pliars to pull cable, or a long needle nose to pull cable through grill. Will need to be lubed or changed.
