Trying to get my 87 GXL motor turned over but it won't budge.



ATF? or something more drastic?



Thanks

Travis

put some atf in there, let it sit. pull the rubber plug on the bottom of the tranny. then take a big pry bar/screwdriver and try to turn the motor backwards.

if its carbon locked....I'VE HEARd that if you put the car into a foward gear, then push the car backwards, it will free up the rotor...can anyone confirm this?
