Cylinders may have filled with oil. Try disconnecting ignition coil to disable spark. Trip fuel cut off to disable fuel delivery. Pull all spark plugs and try cranking engine over. . If it won't crank over with plugs removed, you've got internal damage

Motor locked up


I will give you an answer first based on the motor being locked up, frozen, with starter attempting to engage flywheel and motor not turning. Check oil level as lack of oil would predict seized components. Some engines had problems with 2 matching components called cam phasers. These could stick and overadvance timing, resulting in compression bound motor.
Cylinders could be filled with either water or gasoline. Water present from leaking head gasket, gasoline from open fuel injectors.
Several things to try to access damage. Use breaker bar on crank pulley and see if engine can be turned either direction. Remove intake and sparkplugs to see if engine turns more freely or if visibly signs of failure on sparkplugs. These engines having 2 cams have difficult sparkplugs which require special care to remove.
Now if "Locked up" means the starter does not spin or make noise, then its a less severe problem. There is a Lock out switch under the dash on the brake pedal lever. When this switch is faulty, the Brake lights will not light. The vehicle needs this signal to complete the circuit to the starter solenoid. Just replace or reposition the brake lever switch.

CADILLAC Northstar starter replacement


I had seen an abundance of questions on "Were is my starter for my Cadillac Northstar engine?" Yes it is very had to see one unless you have a crystal clear engine for it is mounted under the intake inside the engine.
An experience Cadillac tech can have one replaced in less than an hour. I see some do it in 30 minutes and less. (They have replaced hundreds of them through the years made) Changing one is quite simple and a cleaner way of doing it also having it mounted inside. It stays fairly clean through the years.
No gaskets are needed unless you destroy yours somehow

2006 Freestar. Ran fine last night. Wouldn't start


How many volts does your battery currently have? A cheap multimeter can tell you; I'm not saying the crew at Advance Auto aren't on top of their game, but they do work at Advance Auto... Anything less than 12v DC indicates a problem, and the battery probably won't have enough juice to turn your motor over with less than 10-11v. If your battery voltage is >12v it sounds like you've got a bad starter solenoid (some vehicles integrate these with the starter itself, some do not). Try giving it a few whacks with a rubber mallet or a hammer handle (aka the wooden part).

Hi we have got a clicking noise when we turn key and engine wont turn over we have replaced battery and put a new starter motor on


Sounds like the engine is bound up or seized. Put a wrench on the crankshaft and turn it clockwise. If it turns fairly easy then the crank is free. If it wont tunr at all the something inside as gone bad, could be a bearing, piston rod, or a dozen other things.

It ran out of diesel fuel and now it wont crank what should i do


I would try filling the fuel filter up with diesel. If that doesnt do it dump a little gasoline down its throat.

If it actually wont crank,
" like the engine isnt being turned over by the starter" your battery's are hopefully dead.

You dont want to crank on a diesel starter for more than 30 seconds or you will burn them up. I was tought to try and start it for 30 seconds or so then let cool back down for 5 minutes.

Depending on how long you tried to start it you may have burnt the starter up but I doubt it. If its the starter I would guess its bound up. You can either tap on it with a hammer or take it out and clean it up and have it tested and put it back in or replace it. Good luck

Nissan pulsar '88. replaced starter motor, then


Is it a manual, or an automatic? Earlier Nissans sometimes have a problem with the neutral safety switch (a device that keeps the engine from rolling over in gear or without the clutch depressed.) Generally, if their bad, they need to be a little warm before they'll start, like setting in the sunlight for a few hours.

Good Luck!

Starting difficulty. When I turn the ignition


Check your battery terminals and the hot lead on the starter make sure they are clean and tight. If they are you are most likely will need a starter.
