My cousin has a 1998 Civic Ex. He was letting his brother work on it. They were putting an intake on or something of the sort. anyways, he reversed the lines, (vacuum and coolant) and the car sucked up coolant? What is the result here? it stalled out and he tried once to start it and it just cranked, but didnt fire

Wow. Uhm...why did they pull off a coolant for an intake anyway? But uh, ya...there's a number of things they probably screwed up. Check/change the oil, check/change the plugs, do a compression (and probably leak down) test....eh, everything else to do would require pulling the head or the oil pan (I.E. take motor out of car).

yep, sounds pretty beat.

compression test, check for bent valves. start there.

if comp is good, clean all coolant out of intake mani, and intake.

if comp is bad, pull the head
