Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and welcome!My name isCustomerand I can assist you with your question.
Does the engine crank over and not start or does it not crank over at all?
Have you checked for codes in the computer?
What size engine do you have?
Ok no problem. Have you checked for spark and or fuel?
If the engine is cranking, then no, the engine is not seized
Are there any anti theft or security lights on or flashing on the dash?
Got it.. so it does have a hard time cranking. Ok, then yes, it is possible the engine is starting to lock up. Have you checked the oil level and condition?
Ok, it is possible that the starter motor is bad or the battery may be bad causing this condition. You would need to rotate the engine over by hand to see if the engine is has locked up. It is not hard to do. If this checks out good, I would suspect bad battery or starter motor.
There is a bolt in the center of the crankshaft pulley (the big one at the bottom). You would need to put a socket or wrench on this bolt and turn the engine.
