Default GONE DEAD GSR

I RECENTLY WENT ON A TRIP TO FLORIDA FROM PHILLY AND BACK ON MY 95 ACURA INTEGRA GSR. AS SOON AS I GOT LIKE 2 BLOCKS FROM MY HOUSE THE CAR SHUT OFF ON ME AND WOULD NOT START. WHILE I WAS IN FLORIDA I CHANGED THE SPARK PLUGS ON IT BECOUSE UPON ACCELERATION THE ENGINE WOULD STUMBLE, AT FIRST I NOTICED A CHANGE BUT ON MY WAY BACK THE PROBLEM SURGED AGAIN.I FELT THE PROBLEM WAS ELECTRICAL,COIL,PLUGS,WIRES,OR EVEN FUEL RELATED.WHILE I WAS TRYING TO RESTART THE CAR A SHOP MECHANIC CAME OVER CHECKED IT OUT AND SAID UPON CRANKING THE VALVES AND CAMSHAFT WERE NOT MOVING AND HE IMMEDIATLY SAID MY T-BELT WENT.I BOUGHT THE CAR WITH 96K ON IT AND DONT KNOW IF THE PRYOR OWNER HAD REPLACED IT AT 90K.IT NOW HAS 137K ON IT,I GOT IT TOWED HOME AND DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO, SHOULD I PULL THE VALVE COVER TO SEE IF THE BELT REALLY SNAPPED OR SHOULD I JUST TAKE THE TECHS WORD FOR IT AND PAY 65/HR LABOR *4 HRS + PARTS,EVEN THOUGH I HAVE A GUT FEELING THAT IT ISNT THE T-BELT.ANYONE OUT THERE PLEASE HELP ME OUT! THANK U.

You were overdue for a new timing belt.

Just undo the oil filler cap and watch the cam through the opening
while someone turns the engine over. If that cam doesn't rotate you
have a busted timing belt.

If the belt broke you almost certainly have bent valves, maybe damaged
pistons. The head will have to come off. Bring money.
