Question about 2003 Ford Excursion
Wife started car and drove 0.5 miles. Heard a squealing sound and car stopped running. Since have had the battery, alternator, and starter inspected and tested. ALL PASSED. Visually confirmed starter engages flywheel. Flyweel does not rotate. All pullies turn but cannot rotate crankshaft. Car can be rolled while in gear while off, but so can my Suburban which is healthy. No debris around flywheel. Oil is good, water, trans fluid. No error codes are shown with the diagnostic checker (oribably because we disconnected battery since event). Only thing we can see is the engine icon in the instrument cluster is lit - not flashing (was lit for a couple weeks she said). 135k miles on vehicle. Have had no prev problems. All electricals work, instrument panel is active. Current is going to the starter and the solenoid throws the gear to the flywheel but flywheel does not turn. All I can diagnois myself. Any ideas?
Try turning the engine manually . this can be done off the front of the crank shaft bolt i think it is a 15/16 hex bolt if you can not turn it the engine main bearings are seized to the crank shaft if it turns then a voltage drop test needs to be done.
