Default But, but, my engine wont turn over.

OK, I'll come out and take a look. I had a good idea what happened. My friend Gilbert checked first, yep, no crank. Yep, coolant is low. So this morning we went to pull the plugs. It was -13, not fun.

Ya, I think we found the problem.

Got all the plugs out and turned it over. A bit of coolant came out.

I gave it a couple of quick key turns until it had made a full rotation.

Didn't want to start.

OK, I'm cold. Have it towed back to my shop, pick up new spark plugs and 5 quarts of oil.

She hands us the keys and says, I tried to start it every day. Been sitting there for 5 days now. Nice, slam the crank in to dry aluminum bearings.
