In geek speak, it'* called a Schraeder Valve. To add to the "must change that oil" to-do list, did you, or are you going to (meaning, you oughta do it), change out your spark plugs and your O2 sensor? They are VERY sensitive to coolant and will never work right again once burning coolant is introduced.
And yes, new oil is very important. Contaminated oil is very acidic to the rod, cam, and main bearings, and as Archon said, it won't run for very long like that.
EDIT: Check ALL your electrical connections that you messed with. MAP, IAC, MAF, TPS, IAT comes to mind...I am leaning more towards MAP, BUT the computer *may* put itself in a no-start condition if *any* of those sensors are not connected. Also, the spark plugs, if they are the old ones, will also prevent it from starting. Trust me, I know.
