Asked in Transmission Fluid, Dodge Charger
Will transmission fluid unseize a 2007 dodge charger engine?
If the engine has seized, then it's pretty much done for. Transmission fluid, or engine oil, will do nothing to solve that. Transmission fluid goes in the transmission - which if that is seized, again - you're in trouble. The only way to get around replacement is to disassemble the seized component (engine, tranny, whatever) and replace the seized components and anything else that was damaged as a result of the seizing. sorry.

Asked in Car Starting Problems
Will a seized car engine even crank at all?
If you want to make sure it is seized. Remove the spark plugs. Take off the starter and try to pry engine to move, with out damaging the teeth of the fly wheel, with a lever. or take off timing chain cover and try to turn engine manually. If you can't budge at all, then your engine is seized. When you run an engine long enough with no oil and then stop engine. Piston's actually weld (seize) to cylinder wall. REPLACE ENGINE...

Asked in VW Beetle Type 1
How do you fix a seized air cooled volkswagen motor?
You need to overhaul the engine. Your first mission is troubleshooting: did the engine seize because the pistons seized, or because the main bearings seized? To do so, pull the heads and try to remove the cylinders. If they won't come off, piston seize. If they will and when you have them off the engine won't turn over...bearing seize.
