I have a 96 Mercury Villager between 33k and maybe 38k. Nice little van buy my friend drove it one day and when she pulled into the parking lot of her destination that motor seized up & died. The car would NOT restart. I tried to jump the car, it got power but you turn the key you hear a click or two. I've replaced the starter and gotten the car to sorta do a 1 or 2 second crank but the motor was burning up my new starter. Its like the motor was locked but I don't get it. I feel like there is more to this. What exactly are the symptoms of the Distributer seizing up? Would that cause a van to die in mid action, CAN you START a van at all with it? And lastly.. Im not a mechanic so How can i tell if it is indeed the distributer? Your help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
