Question about Honda Civic
Probably a blown head gasket. If the engine won't urn over now it's either hydrolocked (coolant leaks into the cylinder(s) and since it can't be compressed like air, the piston can't move up and the engine can't turn over). Or it's seized from coolant contaminating the oil, and you driving it. Remove the spark plugs and try turning it over. If you see antifreeze or water spray out the spark plug holes, then keep spinning the engine with the starter (for no more than 30 seconds) to expel the coolant. Then dry the spark plugs with a propane torch or lighter, and reinstal them. Change the oil and it should start and run. Have the head gasket replaced before driving it again. You can buy a good used engine for your car if the old one is seized and the rest of the car is in good enough shape to be worth the money.
