If you turn the key over and it just clanks not click click click then you proubly sezeed the motor up


so does the engine turn over / at all???is the water ok.oil clean/ok...timing chain???


Remove all the spark plugs and try turning the crankshaft by hand. It's the large pulley at the bottom center of the engine. If you can turn it by hand with the spark plugs out, it's not seized. HTH. - Jim
