I recently purchased sight unseen a 2015 Ghibli from an auction. Big mistake. The car needs an engine and alot of front end parts. Does anyone have any advice or know where I might purchase the parts/wreck donor car ? Thank you for the help
Very Interesting. I don't think a motor would lock up from a minor front end accident. At most, the engine would overheat and blow a head gasket if there was damage to the front radiator. My advice would be to remove the drive belt and try to turn the engine over, In case any of the pulleys or anything got damaged from the accident. If any of the pulleys, alternator or compressor got damaged it could make it feel like it's locked up. I would try to turn it over with the drive belt removed Just to make sure the engine is in fact locked up.The car did not sustain that much damage to the front and from what I can tell. I don’t know why the engine is locked up, but it is from at least what my mechanic is telling me. We put a breaker bar on the crank, and the engine is very difficult to turn if it will at all. Don’t know what caused that.
