I was currently racing my 1999 Honda civic ex, I didn't change gear in time so it went over the rpm and then I changed when it did a whining noise when second gear came in car was still running good and when I put 3rd gear in in the 600rpm the car did a big noise sounding something like blump blump!! towards the bottom back, the car suddenly turned off and didn't turn back on anymore. the car has a b16a dohc vetch. what could it possible be?

Did you see any oil or coolant draining out? Will it turn over but not start or not turn over at all?

shouldn't have raced at all if you didn't know how to shift.

oil and coolant are good. car turned on 3 hrs later after that happened but only turned on for less then a min then turned off then didn't turn on at all

Garcia, as soon as I read your statement, I hoped this was not in traffic and that saying came to me "every good man knows its own limitations" (as well as his machines') and what Inspire said above is the same thing that came to mind therefore, since it has been said I'll add to it that whatever you do, never engage in doing things with a vehicle which you are not 100% knowledgeable with! Because the law considers it a weapon even though the only firing one can do is backfiring.
