Check to make sure there's not spark plug wires laying on the manifolds. Any visible leaks?

it had a small power steering leak and it leaked about a quart of oil between changes. left valve cover is covered in oil so i think its head gasket but there was no water in oil and it wont start usually it'll at least start with blown head gasket won't it.

----------

and all wires are good spark plugs still look decent too
