Question about 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier
Engine guy says the engine is screwed. Is it locked up or is there another answer?
Best way to check remove all spark plugs before trying to turn the engine over. If it does not turn, Go to your Napa Auto Zone where ever you can find mystery oil it say this and its red add 3 to 6 oz to each cylinder let this sit for 2 days then come back on the 2nd day fill each cylinder to the top each one will take a different amount of oil after doing this put the plugs in just start them in their threads no need to tighten them. Let this stand for 7 days come back pull the plugs then lay down with a socket and ratchet with a pipe or plenty of leverage to turn the crank if the wrench does not work if you have a compressor get yourself a blow nozel that will slide down the spark plug hole and will reach the plug threads with a big rubber tip to kind of seal the compressed air into the cylinder just squeeze air into each cylinder many times each over and over some times this will break loose a seized engine its worth a try anyway your not out of anything for trying.

Insert the square tip of a 1/2-inch socket wrench into the square hole in the center of the serpentine belt's adjustment pulley. The adjustment pulley is the smallest pulley the belt wraps around.
Pull the adjustment pulley toward the engine with the socket wrench to release the tension on the serpentine belt, then pull the belt off the air conditioning compressor's pulley.
Remove the bolts which secure the air conditioning compressor to its mounting brackets with an open-end wrench, then position the compressor to the side of the engine compartment. Do not disturb the hoses that attach to the compressor.
Pull the electrical connection off the crankshaft sensor.
Remove the two bolts that secure the crankshaft sensor against the engine with an open-end wrench, then slide the sensor out of the engine.
Slide the new crankshaft sensor into the engine, then install and tighten the sensor's two securing bolts with an open-end wrench.
Press the electrical connection onto the crankshaft sensor.
Position the air conditioning compressor against its mounting brackets, then install and tighten the compressor's bolts with an open-end wrench.
Pull the serpentine belt's adjustment pulley toward the engine with the socket wrench, then position the belt onto the air compressor's pulley.

Place the crankshaft pulley bolt removal tool over the end of the crankshaft bolt. Tool will hold the pulley in place while you apply torque to the bolt with an impact wrench. Start the air compressor by plugging it in and turn it on. Set the pressure of the compressor on the highest setting. Attach air hose on the air compressor to the air inlet and the locking mechanism using the quick-connect lock on the end of the air compressor hose. Set the impact wrench to turn counterclockwise. Spray the crankshaft bolt with penetrating oil. Make sure you soak the bolt head in oil so that it is easier for the wrench to remove. Secure the socket end of the wrench to the pulley bolt and pull the trigger on the impact wrench. You might need to reapply penetrating oil several times during this process to loosen the bolt up. Eventually, the bolt will come off 215 lbs torque, and simply stated righty tighty, lefty loosy. Hope this will assist you.
