Question about 1998 Nissan Pathfinder
Our local garage folks say the engine in my 1998 Pathfinder is seized. It lost power and quit running. They said it was the starter at first and replaced the starter (they say it was burnt out). They asked me to come in and see the vehicle and explained that one of the spark plugs (the mica lining) has melted and they suspect that is what caused the engine to seize. Can it be unseized? Could it be something else? Thanks in advance for the help.
This is 100% possible - you are going to need a new engine - once an engine siezes there is no way to bring it back without extensive machine work, to help you understand what happened there was a lack of oil somewhere in your engine and basically what happens is those pieces heat up and weld themselves to each other (thermal welding) this usually happens on cars when the oil has been neglected and or on higher mileage cars when the oil pump is not pumping enough oil to the engine - once this happens it is cheaper to buy a new engine than to repair it.
