Answers :

If the starter is kicking in,but is not turning the engine,it is most likely locked up,the engine that is.If not,arm the antitheft,and then disarm it,and see if the starter will engage.

I have a 1999 Chevrolet Cavalier. I recently had my headgasket, top end, starter, and spark plugs replaced because the head gasket blew while the engine was overheated. I drove my car for two hours after it was just fixed and the temperature gauge said it was overheating again. The car stalled out after I put in some engine coolant, and checked the oil. The oil dipstick claimed to be bone dry. I put in the only oil I could find at the gas station which was 10W-30 but my car takes 5W-30. I put
