Possible seized engine
My 2002 explorer ran great no problems. I parked it after
work o e night and the next morning when I tried to start it,
it made an awful noice and I think the motor seizured. I left
it and tried starting it about a week later and it did the same
thing but ran for a second. What could possibly be the
problem. I need this fixed really bad if it can be done, just
not sure where to even start
It's hard to diagnose noises over the internet. Can be anything. Check the serpentine belt area. But if you like the vehicle, have it towed to your local mechanic for diagnosis. No sense in you trying to guess and letting it sit there.
Could be cam chain guides and tensioners (V6). They do wear out. If so, front can be replaced with engine in vehicle. If rear, the engine has to come out. Suggest you take Tom's advice and have it towed.
