Default Re: 2000 SL2 with no-start situation. Need extra brains on this!!!

This is refered to as 'hydraulically locking' the engine (the stop reflects the fact that the block is too flimsy to compress water).

Normal engines do not survive the stresses ; your weak start/charge system may have spared it .

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
