Native English speakers, could you please help me with these issues?
Is this sentence correct:
"He didn't EXTEND HIMSELF too much, and just said that he his name was Mark, and that he was an old friend of yours."

You will have to tell us in different words what you mean by 'extend himself' before we can give you a good English rendering of what you want to say.
Possibly: "He didn't explain himself much,....." (Omit 'too')

No. Where do you get these strange ideas from?
I think you mean he didn't say much, he wasn't talkative, he didn't give away a lot of personal information.

I'm not native speaker, but I'm pretty sure that "extend himself" does not mean what you want to say.
Nor do I know WHAT you are trying to saySource(s): dutch/NL

What I think correct is.
He didn't introduce himself too much , and just said that his name was Mark, and that he was an old friend of yours.
