    Been going down the search function on the forum. Hoping what im reading is not correct

    Ok, lemme explain the last couple days...

    Wednesday.

    Replace the IAC and pulled the car out the yard for the first time since the trans was replaced
    still ,maintained a high idle. Changed the oil and looked a little funny, but i threw some gas in
    a cruised around for about 30 mins. Douchebag that replaced said trans cut the trans hoses
    and replaced them with rubber hoses. Hoses pops off= loss of all gears= car not getting home.
    But still started and ran. until it didnt..Applied jump box and got a loud click and no start.
    Tried a few more times and still nothing.

    Thursday.

    Towed car home, and attempted to start with jumper cables and jump box. Both by themselves
    and simultaneously. Nothing doing. Tightened up trans hoses, but still no start. Said screw it
    and started drinking

    Friday.

    Got fired

    Saturday & Sunday

    Drank more

    Monday.

    Got a replacement battery= installed= still loud click and no start. Went up under hood, noticed the
    dipstick hanging up and checked oil to find it looking like a vanilla chocolate shake, like m-fer!!!
    Oil breather cap completely white like summabi*tch.

    Now my questions are..
    1) is it hydrolocked and if so, can i fix it
    2) is it too far gone, by my description
    3) what is my best and worse case scenario

    Installed- Gen V w/lim. Fsic, 3.3 mps, Autolite 104's, FWI intake, 75 dry shot(not hooked up)
    TB spacer, Felpro metal gaskets.

    pull spark plugs, try to crank it again, if it spins it was hydro locked and you likely blew a head gasket.

    your trans swap guy sucks bags of dicks too. old boss may as well too...real sh it week i see.

    id pull all 6, watch for coolant to shoot out one of em. one may even come out wet with coolant.

    keep in mind every time you crank it and it stops spinning your putting a lot of force on the hydro locked pistons rod bearing. ( it can kill that bearing) so lets hope you didnt try to much to crank it over.

    With the plugs out you should be able to get a socket on the balancer bolt and spin the motor by hand to see if it'll move. Should turn relatively easy since you aren't fighting the compression.

    Another thought.. if you have a frozen up alt or something, it could hinder the engine from turning. Pull off the belts and see if any of the pullies refuse to turn.
    I drink..so consider that when reading my posts.

    I got busy with interviews today..thankfully so after i pulled the plugs
    and tried to start i put them back in and left.

    So, tomorrow i should try and turn the crank without plugs and take a belt off
    and turn? Hopefully it can be fixed with things i currently have, cant really
    afford a parts store run at the moment.

    All i want to do is get her around the corner to my backyard. So, i can take
    my time on it. I mean it set the whole 18 months i was in NC, so until
    i get back on my feet i can plan further. New motor if necessary(worse case)

    Yea, I'd pull all the plugs and the belt and see if the motor turns by hand. Turn it clockwise. If the motor turns free then check all the pulleys, A/C compressor, etc. and make sure they all spin freely. I have seen issues with the A/C compressor locking up and not allowing the motor to turn over.

    Worst case, key on so the steering wheel doesn't lock, car in neutral and push that bish into the backyard with the help of a few buddies, or maybe a car/truck to assist. Let it sit until you get some cashflow again and then go from there. Even if the motor turns out to be dead there are inexpensive sources for motor swaps.
