How to tell if engine is seized or if the starter is at fault
Recently me and a few friends went down a road we shouldn't have in my 06 Saturn Ion. Well, long story short, I had to replace the oil pan. Before, the oil light came on I shut off the car and limped to the side of the road and had a friend tow us home. Now the car wont start after the replacement. All i get is a click and all the lights dim off except for the engine light. I'm praying its not seized as I am a broke college student, but its looking more an more like it is.
Put the correct size socket on the front crankshaft bolt and with a breakover bar see if you can turn the engine manually. To make it easier you may want to remove the spark plugs.
