    Hope this helps!!
  • :sick: 1995 Buick Regal II - 3800

    This car belongs to a High School student that works and gives all of his money to help support his family. He is a fine young man who more than deserves our help.

    Background:

    The car ran fine until it was parked last weekend. The next morning the Motor would not turn over. Upon inspection the old Starter was found to be drenched in oil from a leak on the front side of the top end. I pulled it and had it tested at a local auto parts store who said it was marginal. Because I lost all of my knuckles in the removal process I went ahead and purchased a lifetime Starter to replace the 'marginal' motor.

    I first replaced all of the gaskets that I could to stop oil leaks, I then installed a new starter with new + and - Battery Cables and a new Battery. Those looked questionable also - 17 year old original equipment.

    Now - We experience the same effect when trying to start and even when trying to rotate the serpentine belt by hand, the motor feels like it is locked up!

    In recent weeks the young man that owns and drives the car had issues with the trans. linkage and occassionally had to shift to nuetral in order to start the car.

    Is it possible this is a transmission / linkage issue? OR - is it a toasted motor that locked up with no signs.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated. He needs to be mobile for the next 3 months to keep his job and complete high school until he leaves for the Army in Dec.

    Thanks
  • Check the intake plenum on top of the engine. I cant remember what year they went to the black poly plenum but they had issues with them leaking. Try pulling the spark plugs out and see if it will turn over. I have seen them leak coolant into the cylinders while sitting which can cause the engine to appear that it is siezed. If there is coolant in the cylinders it will blow it out all over and you will know for sure that is the problem. It is usually an intake plenum and gasket that leaks. There is an updated setup for them if that is the one you have.
