Let me start but saying I am the most non car guy in the history of men. So idk s**+ about engines. But about 5 years ago the engine on one of my cars locked up and was forced to scrap it because the maintenance cost were more than the vehicle itself.
My wife’s car wouldn’t start today after work so I went over to get her and “check” on the car. All the lights inside and on the dash come on so I think I have eliminated the battery being bad. The dip stick was damn near completely dry as well. When you turn the key the engine clicks a few times and that’s it. I am hoping and praying that the engine isn’t locked but I have a feeling that might be it.
Also: Does anyone know a fairly priced mechanic in the Southwest area of Houston Texas?
