2005 MBK Nitro engine seizure

Hi, Moatez you may have squeaked your top end this is commonly known as "HEAT SEIZE" the piston heats up expands and becomes extremely tight in the cylinder bore and usually occurs mainly on 2 cycle engines right after a fresh top end rebuild, but it can also happen to brand new motorcycles, these are rare instances due to better quality control and education. Overheating failures that cause pistons to seize are many and each one should be carefully diagnosed to prevent future repeat offenders and the usual suspects are:
1. Lack of lubrication due to low or no oil.
2. Among the causes of lack of cylinder, lubrication is clogging of lubricator by dirt or waste, obstruction in oil pipes/lines, leaky check valves, leaky pump packing, broken oil pipe/line, oil too cold to feed.
3. Wrong type of oil used in premix or oil tank.
4. Improper premix ratio you should start with 32:1 as a baseline.
5. New rebuild piston to cylinder tolerances set up too tight.
6. Failure to follow proper break-in procedures with a 16:1 premix ratio.
7. Loose fasteners causing intake, base, or head gaskets to leak or blown crankshaft seal, failure caused by age, overheating or walking.
8. Holes in the intake manifold bent or warped intake flange or reed cage any stray air coming into a cylinder will cause a super lean condition.
9. Improper assembly of reed valve gaskets.
10. Insufficient warm-up time for temperature conditions before WOT.
11. Broken, pinched or cracked fuel line.
12. Carburetor fuel passages clogged or restricted from stale fuel varnish, ethanol sludge, dirt, rust, or fuel level in float bowl too low.
13. Main jet size too small or partially clogged
14. Air filter improperly installed, missing or not sealing.
15. Faulty or improperly adjusted oil pump and or cable.
16. Failure to bleed oil pump after a rebuild/replacement or running oil tank dry.
17. Engine coolant level too low, too old, or improper mixture ratio.
18. Radiator clogged, fins damaged, or faulty cap.
19. No liquid circulation due to failed oil or water pump.
20. Cavitation due to air in oil or coolant system.
21. Water and oil mix due to a blown head gasket.
22. Timing retarded due to faulty CKP sensor or CDI.
23. Improper spark plug heat range (too hot) and or gap.
24. Excessive engine load, brakes dragging, clutch slipping, transmission lubricant level too low or viscosity to high.

How do you check the valve clearance on the dirt bike. I am trying to figure out why my motor seized up without taking apart the top end.

motors seize up from over heat or lack of lubrication
check sump oil level and coolant level in the radiator
Possible hole or bad hose

Hi I'm Peter. I'm not quite sure if you are asking if a car will start with no oil in the engine or if the engine was ran with out oil until it seized up. Is this an engine that was just put in? If it was rebuilt and installed was running then froze up I would suspect that the person who rebuilt the engine made a mistake somewhere causing the engine failure. If you are asking that if you drained all the oil out of an engine would it still start and run the answer is yes. There will be a residual oil on all the metal components that would allow the engine to run for a while but eventually it would heat up from friction and seize. If you ran the engine low on oil possibly from it leaking out somewhere and the engine will no longer start then you just seized the engine and it will need rebuilt if possible or replaced.

Toyota corolla, engine seized

the first thing I would do I would check my alternator belt if it runs w pump and alt this could be the problem of overheating and dead battery on the engine part what I do is put a socket at the crankshaft bolt and turn it with a 1/.2 braker bar if it turns the engine is not seiced be sure the engine is off to this tests.

Radiator lost coolant ( not sure where or how) no visible leaks, and dont think it was burning it, but engine overheated and seized. Would this be an upper end repair only? Bike is an '08. I am the...

Most likely the damage would be confined to the top end as long as it never lost oil pressure. However, when an engine seizes, the debris gets all thru the oil and it really should have the cases split and all the lower end parts inspected and cleaned. Also, you'll need to address the overheating/coolant issue. Inspect the water pump, and radiator cap may not be holding the required pressure and let all the coolant out the overflow which you may not have noticed while riding. Good luck!

Suzuki tl 1000 electric problems

OK, the first thing to do is check your fuse box for blown ignition fuse all motors in order to run must have fuel, air, fire, oil to operate. Since this bike was setting up for four months I recommend changing the oil and filters, empty and flush the gas tank remove any rust if present, your carburators will need servicing, empty and clean the bowls replace gaskets clean your jets, charge your battery replace it needed. Check your charging system (ie stator.) for proper voltage output replace if needed. check Automatic timing unit at the chank shaft on lower right side of the bike. this is needed for impulse signal to be sent to the coils to firng in seqence. If no fire at the spark plug the problem is either your ATU or your coils need replacing. Happy riding !!!

Ran cb 750 with low oil no seized . how to un seize

Only safe way is to disassemble motor. As you dont know if the bearings have welded themselves together.
Any " quick fix" will ultimately end in tears and expense.
The bikes age justify s the expense and you might as well throw a Yoshimura kit in it and get some more horses while it's in bits anyway.

1996 ford contour gets hot , no hot heater or temp guage movement

Is your temperature gauge working now? That is of more concern then your heater as you wouldnt know if your engine was overheating until its too late. Your heater core could be clogged, they get clogged quite easily. You can flush them or replace. The part is inexpensive but on some models you have to take out dash to replace them, but on other models it only takes about 30 mins and a few bolts.
