1991 Toyota Camry will not turn over. Starter and battery are fine, spark plugs are out so not a fluid lock in a cylinder.

Asked by Aug 13, 2017 at 12:16 PM about the Toyota Camry

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Crank shaft rotated about ten degrees and stopped. it's as though there is a
physical obstruction to it turning further. Tried rotating crankshaft by hand and
bent my cheater bar 90 degrees. The car has been sitting for a couple of years.

More than likely internal engine issue,bent valve,s or crank issue.

Consider pulling the engine dip stick. What does the oil smell and look like? Remove all the spark plugs then try to crank her over. Get back with results.
