Recovered my stolen 92 lude

Hey guys I'm new to the forum but I've been lurking for a while. Seen some really great work on here.
Created this thread to ask a few questions and inform you guys on my situation.

I bought a really clean 92 prelude Si [auto not 5 spd] with only 88,500 miles.
When I got it it had a brand new starter, spark plugs, distributor cap and rotor, timing belt and fresh fluids. I might be leaving something out but yeah it was purring.

Unfortunately about a week after I got it and registered it, my car was stolen.
I finally got the car back two days ago and luckily it wasn't stripped of everything. I'm very glad it wasn't a professional thief otherwise my car would be on blocks somewhere right now.

Mechanically the only thing they stole was the radiator, that's the only thing missing from the engine. Problem is we don't know how long it was driven on no radiator. I believe the transmission in these is radiator cooled so when the transmission cooler lines were disconnected it ran dry of fluids.

The car starts up fine, it just won't go into gear right now, I'm hoping when I get the radiator, fans, and hoses all back in and topped off and once the transmission gets better lubrication it operates again. Otherwise I might need a new transmission.

Even compression across the board so I didn't blow any heads either.

And if you're still reading what are some good forum posting apps I can use for pictures and stuff to post some of the car. Thanks

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.

It can be that they just took out the radiator and never drove it. Replace everything and then test, you might be lucky and all is still good.
