i remember reading somewhere on here that if you shut your car off right after starting it up without warming up that something can blow, apex seals? well the other day someone moved my car and shut it off right away, and now it wont start so i was wondering what exactly happened..

my guess is that you blew both seals, your motor is gone dude sorry to tell you but your ganna need a rebuild. Didnt anybody tell u that if u turn your engine off right after u start it up your whole car can blow up? fo real!! or your engine is flood'd yea i think that might make more sense i dont know

yeah i knew that i could blow a seal, and i told my family that if they ever needed to move my car to make sure that they let it warm up before they shut it off, but i guess my dad was in a hurry or something because he just couldnt wait 5 minutes for it to warm up. its not flooded , i have a fuel cut off switch that i installed and tried that (it always unfloods me) and i can hear that there is no compression. this sucks, i wasnt even home and my motor's blown, i loved this car **** i dont know what im going to do, ,i just spent my last 500$ fixing my computer that broke 3 days ago, june isnt turning into a good month for me. anyone selling rebuild kits cheap?

before we go jumpn to anything, what happends when u turn the key? does your engine turn at all? if you really did blow your seals (reminds me of a funny joke) your engine should still start. How much gas did u have before this all happend, and id suggest tryen to unflood it a couple of more times. i doubt you blew your engine but if u did, wow that sucks, mybad.

funny joke:



A Penguin is driven through the desert, its really hot out and the penguin doesn’t like the heat. So he’s driven on down the road when he hears a “pop” and his car dies, but luckily there’s a garage right there, so the penguin pulls in and rolls his car up to the mechanic. The mechanic is like come back in one hour. It’s really hot out and now the penguin is sweating all over himself, so the penguin goes in to the store across the way and orders a vanilla ice cream cone. He starts eating the ice cream but a penguin doesn’t have hands, he has those flipper things right. So he’s getting the ice cream all over the place, its on the floors its on the walls, this guys bugg’n out right, its even on himself, all over his hands and mouth. It takes the penguin so long to finish the ice cream by the time he’s done it’s already been an hour. The penguin goes back to the garage and woddles over to the mechanic and says, “so whats wrong with my car?” the mechanic replies “we’ll it looks like you blew a seal” and the penguin retorts “oh no its just ice cream”. - The End

hahahaha

Dude, you are probably flooded. Try to unflood it first, before jumping to conclusions that you blew a seal. I am dealing with a dead car right now, but not blaming it on any coolant seals, apex seals, or O oil rings yet. That is jumping to ****, you think it is blown, you crack the engine open, and it is completely clean inside, then you get pissed and realized you should have tried unflooding it.



Good Luck.

ahh i feel like an ***, he just flooded the **** out of it. i did the unflood procedure 4 times and then it started to sound like it was going to start, i cranked it like 7 times and it started. man my whole street was engulfed in a huge cloud of white smoke. i should probably clean my plugs up now lol. and after i got it running i decided i needed another mod so i went to my friends shop and gutted out my cats and got a shitload more top end power but lost a lot of low end. i guess i need to hook something up to get my 5/6 ports working properly now with no backpressure



thanks a lot guys!
