Question about 1993 Toyota Celica
The engine use to get RED hot! Then one day i was driving down the street and it just shut off it was hard to turn the wheel's and it wouldn't turn back on.It would try to turn on but something sounded like something was going to blow and something was grinding when it tried to turn over.What could be the problem or problem's
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?
