Is it full of oil? See if you can turn the engine by the crankshaft bolt with a ratchet.

10

Do you have to remove belt and plugs to that or can you do it by hand?

19,675

No, have someone crawl underneath it and do it.

How full is the oil?

10

It needs a quart of oil. I had someone do that earlier and it won't turn. But I had someone tell me you had to take plugs and belt off to turn. Oh God, I hope my motor isn't locked up..

If you know someone with some tools you can turn it with a 1/2" ratchet and socket without taking anything off.

10

It wouldn't do anything....

Wouldn't budge at all...

Sorry to say it's locked up.

10

Phuck. .. thanks for the help though

19,675

You can find an engine at a local junk yard

10

Money is always the issues... just my freakin luck. Thanks for your time :)

One last thing though... I thought when a motor locks up it makes some kind of clattering noise. Mine didnt. It just died. Weird right?

19,675

Not always but you should have seen an oil light on the dash. Take the belt off and see if any thing has froze up. A/C, alternator etc. Check everything.

10

Is there any other reason besides a locked up motor that will cause it not to turn?

19,675

I have seen a transmission do it once. Other than that,no.

19,675

I have seen the a/c or alternator do it though.

10

Ok... appreciate your time. Have a great night.

19,675

you too
