i got my car towed from my mechanic didnt pay him a cent
because they couldnt get it started, they said it was the starter motor they changed it over for another one infront of me still didnt turn on just hear a loud noise not a clicking one and thats it doesnt start, before this they had somehow burnt the wires going from the battery to the starter motor

it would be great if anyone could point out roughly what i need to do to get it going again

thanks





OK UPDATE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
the engine is seized !, the drive pulley cant be moved back or forth
what i dont understand is how the engine seized after they put the engine back together the car was running, then after they burnt wires engines sezied ? i dont get it, but after some checking out i think the starter motor wires got burnt coz it was touching the extractors, i found melted wire all on it no other way to explain the wires
but how does the engine seize later on after the car had been started and driven round the block

how c an i identify wat part is seized ?

run a dianostics test.

and check all fuses.

If you are handy with a multimeter check your voltages and the starter
