MY CAR OVER HEATS AND WONT START AND MY STEERING WHEEL IS STIFF WHAT COULD BE THE PROBLEM?
1997 Pontiac Grand Prix
I have a 97 pontiac grand prix and one day it stopped on me. temp shot right up and under the hood was smoking. So I tried putting antifreeze in it afterwards i stopped and started putting water in it. The temp was going down slowly but the car would not start back up. So i left the car and got it towed to my house the next following day. After getting it off the trucking bed i tried to start it again but it still didnt come on. So myself and a neighbor pushed the car into a parking space and come to find out the wheel was so stiff to move. The lights in the car are on so no its not the battery causing the car not to start.

The overheating could have damaged the head gaskets resulting in loss of compression and the inability to start.
Have the coompression tested for a start.
A block test for determining if the head gaskets are bad would be recommended.
It depends on what other damages are there. It can be costly and should start from 1000. You need to get local quotes to be accurate.
Yes it is very costly, Where would be a great place to get a quote from?
