Ok I got my engine running after putting in new plugs. It sounded rough for a little bit, then I shut it off and started it again. And it ran alot better then all of a sudden it died!! and not it won't turn over!! But the thing is that is has oil in it and had no reason to freeze. But I don't know if it froze though. I need help please. Any advice?

ps. The engine was rebuilt a couple of years ago but had never been used. So technically it is a NEW motor!!!

if it ran fine then suddenly nuthing you better double check your wires and all your connections. also make sure your batt is up to par. get a $2 test light and it will be your best friend for a vw wiring system. Evil or Very Mad

ps: get a v6 (you barely notice when a plug wire has came off)

When I turn the ignition the engine doesn't turn but it turns when I put it in 3rd and push on it. I have a new starter in it. I'll see more about it tomorrow.

Sounds like battery, starter and/or connection. Did you try jumping it?

It does not turnover . But it makes no sense that it froze. Because it had oil.

No it does not turn by hand I've tried the big wrench and it won't turn. So I don't know why it froze because it had oil.

We had the same thing happen a few years back. You say it was rebuilt but never used? When it happened to us no one had cleaned out the oil galleys of the crank, so as soon as the oil pressure came up it pushed all the metal shavings into the bearings and froze the engine in under 2 min.

Did you try to turn it both ways? If it will turn one way and not the other, it maybe something wedged between the piston and the head.
