checked all fuses interior and underhood. it is raining so can't get under car just yet. average hourerly wadge in this area is 120 and hour which way out of my league. any ideas would be appreciated. other than testing the starter(which showed o signs of
goeing) my son said the engine must have froz even though he has never seen or heard of it happening when smooth running engine is shut down while cool. He said even if oil fried in area that lets oil into the piston , it shoud try to start he is stumped and my wife is crying. please help
Anyway camperr221, can you tell us why it overheated in the first place, if you know?
I assume you already checked to make sure you are getting power from the battery?
Do you have a multimeter?
