The most common cause of engine lockup is a lack of oil. Also, an engine overheating from lack of coolant can cause an engine to lock up.
Major engine failure?
you look if the owner out a lock on the engine
Not that I have heard of. The aggressive application of brakes in any instance may cause wires or hoses to come loose on the engine though.
No. It either worked to start or it didn't.
no but it can cause motor to lock up because no air flow
This engine (3.0L) is an interference engine so yes, the engine could lock up if the timing belt jumped.
yes, and it will cause it to overheat and parts will break, dont try it lol. you might make it a mile before your car is done
When the engine can no longer rotate.
dodge lancer vapor lock
It could, any engine can "lock up" if not maintained properly.
No such thing as chlorine lock.
The year, make, model and engine size would help us help you. In older vehicles (pre-fuel injection) vapor lock was an issue.
If you mean "hydro lock", that is when coolant enters the combustion chamber and prevents the engine from turning (water doesn't compress)
An engine can lock up on a number of reasons but mainly due to mechanical failure for example if the Timing belt snaps... etc...
No, only the compressor will lock up.
You have to lock it from the outside with an extra key.
Does the torque converter lock? It should lock on both 3rd and 4th gear. How are the engine temperature and temp gauge? The 4T60-E requires decent temp information to run normally, othw it goes to "limp mode" and will not engage 4th nor lock. T
Low or no oil and you seized the internal bearings Overheated and burned out the starter
Vapor lock, will cause rough running and die outs.
Will the engine turn over at all... if it doesnt then it could be the lock up torque converter solenoid... if the engine will turn is the starter working properly, if it is then check for fuel and spark to further eliminate the problem. Ive disconnected my lock up torque converter solenoid just to pretty much get rid of it, cause its bad when they start going bad, locking up when they arent surpost to and kill the engine... they can cause the engine to buck around on you.
Bad door lock actuator.
