One day it just stopped working.
Checked the starter and it was good.
Tied turning the engine by hand - it's stuck, won't turn.
Putting it into gear and rocking the car back and forth won't work.
I'm thinking there is something stuck in the flywheel or the
transfer case is bad. Any suggestions?
If it's locked up, how was the starter checked?
Did it freeze up while it was running, or after sitting?
Can it be turned by hand in one direction and not the other?
If you will describe the symptoms, the observations, the
sound, the vibration, the timeline; something more than
"just stopped working," someone in the newsgroup
will probably know just how to proceed.
