Today, after the towing came, we tried to push start the car.
After that, according to the manual, I'll have to check the starter cut relay, test the starter(will have to remove the intake manifold...)

Piece of work!

have you tried to tap the starter? I did that and it worked... also if it does work that way that would mean you need a new starter. quick way to check without having to remove anything.... YET...

If the engine won't turn with the sparkplugs removed, it's not good.

Pull the cylinder head & have a look. Perhaps it's just a jammed/bent valve. Perhaps the head is fine but the shortblock has bent broken rods.

Most likely, a rod.
Until I get another engine, I am not going deeper.

This is the wrong strategy. 1st determine what is wrong with your old engine before spending a dime.
Take it to a shop to pull the head and evaluate it.

What if it is just something relative simple? Broken and jammed valve or timing chain?
What if just 1 rod is broken but there is no other damage nor issues with the engine?
