Ok, got home and the first thing I did was start the car with the gas pedal to the floor. Just like last night it ran for about 10 seconds. When it quit, there was a squeal at the front of the motor in the area of the accessories.
That being said- I took off the splash panel and wa-la, access to the crank bolt. I don't have a breaker bar and 21mm socket. I used a 15" Crescent (no it did not slip) and put my 210# into it and it didn't budge. I then got a 3' cheater pipe and tried it again. Couldn't budge it. I then took the serpentine off and tried again and could not budge it. Did the cheater pipe again and same story. I emphasize that the crescent did not slip or start to slip. I'm expecting the 'it's siezed up' but I'm curious as to why it started and ran for 10 seconds again. Of course, after it ran, it went back to the barely crank for 1 second mode. Thanks again for your patience and wisdom. And for some reason, I haven't bled yet working on this thing, lol. Jim
