It sounds like the engine could be siezed due to broken piston or ring.

2000 Ford Escort, engine runs fine but the car will not drive


It really sounds like one of the cv joints has failed. Even though boots are intact joint could be broke inside-just double check.

If it has a manual transmission, check the clutch start switch on the clutch pedal support. If it has an automatic transmission it could be the transmission range sensor mounted on top of the transmission right side of the engine. In either case it could be the ignition switch (this is the switch you put the key in to start the car).

I went to start by trailblazer, the key turned and all the interior and exterior lights worked fine, but the engine itself did absolutely nothing. not a click, or a crank. what could the problem be?


Could me one of many things , but because you said the engine didn't even make a click , I am going to suggest that you make sure the gear shifter is fully in park ( if automatic trans ) , it won't start if not in park. If manual trans , it won't start if it thinks the clutch is not depressed. Could also be an anti-theft device has kicked in. Good Luck

Need 2001 ford escort zx2 DOHC engine information, belt diagrams


The tensioner is between the a/c compressor and crank pulley, below the power steering pump. Use a 13 mm wrench to 'tighten' the bolt in the center of the pulley and it'll move to release tension off the belt.

Our Kia Spectra was not ran for 2 weeks-when we went to turn on-the gear shift was extremely tight and we used force to move into reverse. We turned the engine off and then when we tried to restart-engine...


this is very common with these cars the shift shaft goes through the aluminum case below the neutral safety switch then is exposed 3 inches befofre it goes into the transmission to shift the case is supposed to be a guide this corrodes you need to use a silicone based lubricant to free it up. Have some one spray under the switch while you hold the brake (key on engine off) and move the shifter from park to first approximately 2 min or thirty times

1995 traker made a loud noise like a lawn mower as I was driving


the shifter has a park neutral lock out device.
it will not shift out ( see left side of console for hidden cover, move lever inside for emergancy shifting)
until you start motor, step on the brake and then the solenoid in the shifter box
unlocks the shifter.

but that is not the problem.

back up.
car will not start or the car will not crank.

turn key ,nothing happens.
turn key , just hear starter solenoid click
turn key , motor cranks, grrrrrrrrrrrrrr, but will not start.

which is it.?
