Remove plugs just to be sure that a cylinder isn't full of water. If its still solid you could try a wrench on the front pulley but by then i suspect you'll be looking for an engine.

Best of luck

The car will not crank starter brand new battery good turning the ignition the starter will click


is the engine siezed ?? try another battery from a known car that starts ,a battery can show 12.4 or more on the meter but have no reserve amp capacity to make it it crank ,this i get on modern batteries owing to the fact their sealed unit so you cannot check the water level in them ,,,,use a hammer and chisel and break the sealed for life top off and you will see what i mean

05 ford ranger started knocking and shut off now won't crank. What is wrong?


Started knocking and shut off ? Now will not start?
That sounds bad - check fluids - engine oil and coolant - those three symptoms can indicate overheating (either by lack of coolant or engine oil).
Did either fluid get low AND does the engine oil look contaminated - milky colored and way overful.
Not Start? Does it turn the engine and just not fire up running?
Or does the engine not turn over at all?
If the engine is siezed - you can tell by the electrical power needed to crank the engine - turn on the lights and try to crank the engine - if all you hear from the starter is a click and all the lights dim - that means a lot of power is needed like:
1. the battery doesn't have enough power - jump start to verify
2. or it requires more power to turn the engine than the battery can provide - engine siezed - try turning the engine by hand with socket/wrench to verify.
I hope your engine is not siezed - if so - hope you still have warranty coverage on the powertrain.
Please let me know what you find and if this helps?

Why are the wheels locked on Jeep ? Won't even roll in Neutral!


so you did get the key to move enough and brakes on to move the shifter to neutral.
are you an the arctic circle, (i have a buddy there,) pop 100.
hand brake off,
park dis-engaged, neutral
if it dont move the brakes are locked
or one axle bearing is seized.
so jack up each wheel 1 by 1, and see if it turns
on flat ground, and other wheels chocked so car can not roll.
i bet all 4 can spin,
and you just can push this heavy pig. i can barely do my wrangler.
you tried to hand push a car?
lets work no starts

does it crank over in park/?
does the engine crank fast , while in the start position?
my guess is the park lock out is fooling you.
most cars the park lock up is complex now.
its really in park not neutral.
and the reason , blown fuse. my guess.
tell all that works key, on in details
head lights, not just my lights work say HEAD
they draw like 10 amps of current, about 100x more that other lights.

even better
does engines start with jumper cables, jumped from a running car.
donor car.
can AAA start car?
if yes, post that first. all else is effect not cause.

Starter works fine but won't crank engine. the pick up has to be given a push first before it starts


If the starter is spinning when you try to start but doesn't spin the engine over then you most likely have teeth missing off the flywheel ring gear. The facts that you say you have to push it and then it starts means the flywheel position changes and the starter has good teeth on the flywheel to engage. To confirm this next time the engine won't crank over remove the starter and look inside at the flywheel for missing flywheel teeth.

I have a 95 mercury villager that started making a knocking noise when idling. If I push on the gas it would go away. I pulled into the drive last night and it died. When I tried to restart it made a...


ALWAYS START WITH CHECKING FLUID LEVELS AND CONDITIONS.THIS ENGINE SHOULD BE A NISSAN BUILT V6 OVERHEAD CAM DRIVEN BY A TIMING BELT.ENGINE BEARING FAILURE NOISES USUALLY INCREASE WITH ENGINE RPM.IF STARTED IS SUSPECT THEN FIND SOME MEANS OF ROTATING ENGINE AT FRONT CRANK PULLEY,GRABBING LOWER PULLEY BY HAND AND TURNING OR SOCKET ON CRANK PULLEY CENTER RETAINING BOLT.IF ENGINE CAN BE TURNED IN THIS MANNER THEN THERE IS MOST LIKELY AN INTERNAL ENGINE FAILURE.IF IT DOES TURN OVER THEN LOOK CLOSELY AT STARTER OPERATION.

Will not crank even though we have good battery power


How was the engine running before you shut it off? Does the starter try to engage? The only three things I can think of to check are the battery, starter, and if the engine has siezed up. Since you said the battery was good, I would check to make sure the starter is engaging. When you try to start the vehicle, the starter pushes a gear out to crank the engine over then retracts once the engine is running.

Engine will not start after replaced piston bearings on crank sha


you can reach down and turn the crankshaft pully by hand to see. If you have a manual transmission, it's even easier; push it a little, put it in 3rd gear, and pop the clutch, and see if the engine turns that way.

89 Ford F250 won't start


To check battery you would need a multi meter to determine how much power is in the battery and how much power is being drawn off the battery when trying to start.Can you borrow a good battery?If you try to jump start the vehicle from another vehicle and engine struggles to turn over its not likely to be a battery fault but an issue with the starter motor or partialy siezed engine.Pull all the spark plugs out and see if the engine will crank over any easier.To check ignition remove spark plug,push removed plug into no.1 H/T lead and lay it on engine block(good earth)crank engine and you should be able to see good spark at spark plug end.Being unable to crank engine at proper speed will not give you proper result so cranking issue must be dealt with first.

Will not turn over, can't move shifter


it sounds like the engine could be siezed due to broken piston or ring.
