Can a transmission cause an engine to seize up? Just a question I was curious bout since I never heard of it happening. Hasn't actually happened to me neither. Thanks
Engine "seizures" are only caused by lack of engine oil, cooling system overheating, and internal mechanical breakage (e.g., timing chain/belt on interference engines). If the transmission fails, in any respect or due to any cause, there are no adverse consequences for the engine.
