You may have seized the engine-if your battery is fully charged and you cannot the engine to crank, the engine may be toast-try putting a socket on the crankshaft pulley ( I think it is a 24mm) and rotate it clockwise with a breaker bar-if you cannot turn it by hand, the engine is done.

2003 Nissan sentra 2003 gxe, had 4 yrs, no problems, blows cold air only, had lines flushed to remove air, thermostat works fine, is it the head gasket?


Start the car up when it is cold and rev the engine up for 30 seconds,loosen up the radiator cap and see if there is pressure there..If there is you probably have a bad head gasket...Caution do not open cap if engine is warm...
