blown engine???

hey guys, up here for a friend so ill do my best to described the situation.

He owns a fifth gen. prelude; and pretty much was in 5th and down shifted to 2nd. He said he was able to coast or drive it the remainging 1 mile or so to his house. He checked to see if anything is leaking or broke; checked spark plugs, check oil, small stuff.

He says when he tries to start it it turns but doesnt crank.... Im going to look at it tomorrow. Any advice at what I should be looking at or anything yall want me to take pictures/ videos of to fix this problem...

Any help/ diagnostic would be greatly appreciated!

Re: blown engine???

i'm assuming since he was in 5th, he was going >45mph??

if that's the case and he went 5th-2nd, he's in big trouble. rent/buy a compression gauge from autozone and do a compression test, and hope for the best. altho i wouldn't be surprised if he has to replace every valve, and some pistons.

Sounds like me playing Gran Turismo 5 lol, but those engines and trannies are immortal. I don't even want to think about how stressed that engine was. Do you know how fast he was going? TBH I have no idea what could be damaged--probably quite a bit--I'm just curious.
