Do you mean that engine cannot be cranked? Then, you can start
by taking the engine off the car, and overhaul it. I think you have the
know how, then, go ahead.

MyTaurus was recently submerged in waterin flood I tried to start it however engine would not turn over I put in a new battery and the engine still would not turn over how can I unseize the engine


Your engine is very unlikely to be seized and very likely to be hydro locked.
You will need to drain all oil from engine by undoing the sump pump then remove the air filter if it has a turbo then this will need to be removed ensuring there is no fluid in it undo all the injectors or spark plugs if carburettor and spin the engine over it should spin freely this will remove any fluid from the pistons there will be some fuel from the injectors so ensure the engine bay is clear when turning the engine over .
Put all back in place replacing the air filter this will allow you to turn engine over but you may still have issues with the electronics and getting it started
Good luck hope that this helps

I had put water in my radiator on my 2000 Crown


Water in the oil is very bad. Your engine has probably locked up. Replace it.

Ran out of engine oil and after i refilled, it wont start


I the engine ran completely out of oil, the engine has been cooked and is probably locked up from the friction between unlubricated metal moving parts. Also may have spun bearings which means the main or rod bearings stacked on top of each other causing the engine to lockup. If you ran the engine without oil until it quit you will probably need a new engine.

Engine wont start


Its possible you got enough oil in one cylinder to make the engine hydro-lock. That is a condition where something liquid is in the cylinder and will not allow the piston to travel from top to bottom.
You may have broke the timing belt.

98 Corolla will not start. Turn the key and I hear one click from the lower front of the engine. Not a series of clicks but one click. Is it the solenoid?


sounds like your starter has given all it got, and yea it is under intake manifold between engine and firewall. something to take in countn: check battery state of charge, spin engine by hand to make sure nothing is locked. this litlle engines like to burn oil and see so many run out off oil and engine locks. good luck

Driving home, 2003 Dodge neon starts to slow down, oil light has come on intermittedenly before, engine started to lose power, brakes locked up, and steering wheel locked up. Car had to be towed. Thanks.


lets hope its not a bad motor from lack of oil pressure, the loss of brakes and steering is due to the engine stopped running this is normal, but hte oil light coming on with the engine running is not good, you will need to see if the engine spins and trys to start, this will tell you a little bit, if it spins then it didnt lock up, and maybe its a fuelpump or timing belt that let go, you will have to do some testing ,check for fuel pressure and spark at the plugs,

2003 Pontiac Sunfire died on me, how/why?


If you hear a loud clank when you try to start it, but nothing turns, that is the starter trying to turn the engine, but the engine is locked up. If the timing chain/belt jumped, the engine would still spin.

I have a 1997 Chevy Blazer that has oil, but no pressure


There's something you can do to check if the oil pump is still working screw off the oil filter and start it only for a few seconds if oil shoots out the pump is working if it doesn't the pump could be clogged or it lose prime if it's working check the wire going to the oil pressure switch may be broken.

You have probably spun a rod bearing. These engines do not like running with low/no oil.
