When the crankshaft gets worn out, the engine will make lots of very loud knocking and or squealing noises. The engine may also lock up tight and not turn over. Damaged crankshafts are usually the result of not changing the oil often enough or not having enough oil in the engine. Crankshafts just dont wear out on their own.
