Is there a way to unseize an engine?

Asked by May 16, 2018 at 11:24 AM about the 2011 Volvo C70 T5

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Our C70's engine seized up with no warning at all, the engine oil was low but our mechanic said it still had enough oil to operate properly, we did not get any engine or oil lights on dashboard. Mechanic tried to manual turn engine but could not get the engine to turn over.

There is a way and it's called rebuilding the engine. Once it seizes, the cylinder walls and parts inside the engine need to be machined and replaced. Your bang for buck option is to replace with another used engine if you like the car or scrap it.

No matter how much you play with it the engine is still ruined. Do what Tom says.
