Could be a lower intake gasket failure. If they are the original gaskets(10 years old) then yea, they probably failed and allowed coolant to enter the intake ports. Can't say as I have ever heard of a head gasket failing on here.

Replace the lower intake manifold, change the oil, new coolant, and you should be good to go. The only problem you might have is if you damaged anything in the rotating assembly trying to start it when it was hydrolocked.
