Car died now wont start

My 5th gen prelude died while driving.
I was at about 4k rpm and i went to shift i was in neutral and it jump to about 7k and died and now it wont start. It sounds like only 1 cylinder is working. Starts works for about half second then dies. Its getting fuel and air. I assume its getting spark because of it almost starting


Where do i check next?

you have to do compression and leak tests to make sure there is no damage

I just have a compression tester no leak down. Will that still give me acurate info?

Also to check to see if i jumped a tooth or two. I check on the cam gears right? I rotate the crank and see if both a gears line up correct?
