Question about 2000 Chevrolet Astro
Here's the deal.. I decided to replace the intake manifold gasket myself due to a coolant leak somewhere because my oil was flooded with coolant and poured out the oil drain when I removed the plug. I even experienced what I think was hydrolock because my engine wouldn't crank. See my other posting on this same vehicle. Anyhow, I replaced the intake gasket and reattached most of the controls, hoses, etc on the engine so that I could try cranking the engine again. Nothing turned even when I tried jumping the vehicles battery. So, I removed all 6 spark plugs and tried cranking the engine again and nothing, only the typical clicking of the starter motor. I even tried rotating the engine myself using the front flywheel and a ratchet wrench but nothing moved except the bolt itself as it started to unscrew. (I didn't dare tighten the bolt too much) What could be causing it not to turn? Could some rust have developed inside the bad cylinder due to the water? Shouldn't I get some movement? Is there anything else I can check and/or do?Please help.Darrell
