You mean it won't turn while cranking engine over? Or have you tried to turn that cam with a wrench?
Is it locked up? Need more info. as to what you have done to check it out then we can tell you what to do
and what not to do like try to turn that cam with a wrench.

NON INTERFERENCE engine. Replace both belts , seals(cams & crank) & water pump. May also want to check tensioner and idler pulleys for bearing wear , if in doubt replace them. 2-5 hour job depending on exp. and clean-up needed/done before re-assembly.Replace coolant hoses also , as needed.
