It sounds like you may have ceased the engine.

When this happens the pistons get so hot they expand inside the engine and can weld themselves to the block. If you can still turn the motor now it means that it came unstuck when it cooled back down. But your cylinder bore is probably scratched.

This problem can be caused by running out of oil or water in the radiator.
Also it could be caused by another problem with either system e.g. Oil Pump or water pump broken.

The bad news is your engine may not be worth repairing. How much do you like the car?

My 1993 toyota celica gt convertible auto is running hot.i had put water in the radiator but still it runs hot.help me


If it is getting hot when you stop - it could be a bad fan motor..
If it gets hot while moving - it could be a bad thermostat or a sensor..
Dont allow it to get to hot or it will cause costly damage to the motor..


Good luck

I'm going to guess TIMING BELT. Fairly common with this engine. Thankfully, they are a "NON-interference" motor so it didn't do any damage when the belt snapped. Just need to replace it. Should cost around $300-$400 depending on where you are. Good luck!

Abnormal spark 2.2L Celica


1998 Chrysler Concorde just stopped running while driving down the road. No warnings, the engine just shut down. The check engine light did not come on, the lights stayed on. When I tried to restart it, it turned over but would not start. What could have caused this?

My 1993 Toyota Celica GT hesitates upon Acceleration


did they change the fuel filter??? if so then i would check to see if you have a miss in one of your cylinders this can be chacked as easy as turning your car on and going around the the muffler and listening to see if it makes a funny noise something like a low cough nothing loud just a little cough. if you cant hear anything like that take it in to a mechanic and have then check the pressure in each one of your cylinders
if it is not either one of those that i am not sure either hope it helps

93 celica won't start


On my 89 gt it would die going down the highway at 75, it ended up being the throttle position switch. As for not starting I'd look into the ignition. Mine went out and Ive bypassed a push-to-start button through the firewall because I don't even want to deal with the steering coloumn.
