Additional info: 1) Removed starter, bench tested OK. Put back in car.
Turn key you hear it engage but it doesn't turn over the engine. 2) Can't
check compresion because engine will not crank over. 3) Loosened
alternator belt and power stearing belt. Tried to move Crank shaft with
breaker bar but would not move in either direction.
Seems like the engine has siezed up. What is the best way to diagnose the
possibility of a crankshaft repair verses a camshaft/head/valve repair.
Owners manual says not to turn with wrench to avoid valve damage.
Also, would like to remove timing belt cover but can't seem to remove
without removing crank shaft pulley. Is there another way? The timing
belt look OK is it possible is jumped and now we have damage to valves?
Car has 105,000 miles on it. What's the best alternative: Rbuilt engine,
rebuilt head (if that is this issue), used engine or simply rebuild it
