Answer 1
This sounds bad, but I would take it to the shop that performed the inspection, have them check it out. Was the car overheating when you were driving it? -
Comment 1
No, there were no signs of overheating as far as sound, smell,warning lights or leaks. I have been told by several mechanics if the engine cannot be manually cranked then it's gone. -
