I have same bike and know some about it. and i race a lot. your bike has a crank or rod whatever you want to call it but it could be cracked, broke, or even could have dirt on it.

After mowing I changed my oil last week. This week I mowed a side lot w/out any problem. Started a 2nd lot and the mower died. I noticed the motor was running hot, so I let it cool down. After cool down...

Did you try jumping it or turning the motor by hand to see if it ceased? Is it possible your battery went dead. Also if it was overheating, check to make sure you used the right oil, and that the cooling fins on the motor are not clogged with grass or other debris.

99 dodge intrepid will not turn over


When a car doesn't turn over at all, it is usually a dead battery, dead starter, or a ceased engine. The first thing I would do is bring the battery and starter to a place like Autozone or Advance Auto to have them tested for free. Check the oil to make sure you have some in there. Driving with no oil will cease your engine and leave you with a $500 tax deductible donation of your car.

I hope this helps.

Ii was riding it earlier and i shut it off then when i got back on it a went to kick it and the kicker was stuck it wouldnt kick. what could it be

The most common causes for this are a ceased piston (for instance, if there was an oil failure, the bike probably wouldn't have ceased until it was turned off) or if an internal bolt has gotten into the bottom end somewhere jamming the crank or kick mechanism itself.
Try removing the cylinders first, as that is the most likely cause of the failure.
If the piston is stuck in the cylinder, you may need to put a block of wood onto the piston and gently tap it out of the cylinder to effect repairs on the bike.
If the pistons come out of the cylinders without sticking, then having the cylinders removed will let you get a look into the crank area for loose bolts etc.
Don't forget to tie off the cam chain so it doesn't fall into the crank, because that's a pain to fish back out.
If you can't see anything wrong in the crank area, you will likely have to open up the bottom end to see what has gone wrong.
I wish I could be more help, but you didn't specify which bike you have.
If it's a 2 stroke, chances are the gas/oil mix was off or it ran out of 2 stroke oil and the piston ceased.

Engine seized?

First thing to do is make sure it's the kick starter that has seized and not the engine. Take the cover off the end of the crankcase and try to turn the crankshaft. Apparently these engines were notorious for doing bottom ends. Start pulling it down and see what you find..

Engine ceased VW 2004 passat 4cyl. 59k, multiply oil changes from local garage, VW too expensive engine ceased. called VW they want to change me to see the car. What shoud lI do?

Let them see the car.

Did you check to see if the vehicle actually had oil in it? Sometimes small shops forget to put oil in or forget to put the oil plug back on.

It may be less expensive to go to your local corner garage at first, but now look at what it is going to cost you.

You may be able to find this engine in the scrap or junkyard. Look for a car that has rear end damage. This indicates that the engine is still good and none of the seals have been shifted because of the damage. Front end damage may cause seals to shift and have an oil leak
