Rav4 Engine Seized 2002 At 85000

Recommended Posts

Help!!!! I was driving on the motorway when I lost poswer and a pop and smoke came out of the engine. Luckily I manged to stop safely. Basically the engine has seized even though my Oil and water were still good. My mechanic who I totally trust is looking at the bearings to see if it is fixable at the moment. If its not then I need to find a new engine. Has anyone come across an engine seize before and how did you get it fixed? and does anyone know of a good engine that could be supplied?

Engines don't sieze for no reason. It has got hot, failed to lubricate or lost some fluid. However, you won't get many replies when there is absolutely no clue about what engine is involved.

It is why we ask for the info when you fill in your profile.

You're 100% sure Oil wasn't low? Never heard of an engine seize without an Oil fault somewhere

Yeah, either no fluid or component failure, definately no reason.

Once more, lack of age and engine type will limit your replies somewhat!
