Q: My engine is stuck and will not turn.

asked by on

I have a ford fiesta fliar, 1997model with an endura engine. Here it is, I ask a local mechanic to fix my clutch. A week there after, he towed mycar and told me the engine was stuck. We did take the gearbox out again and try to see if the problem was there, but I couldn't even turn the engine with my hand. What can I do to fix it?
My car has a manual transmission.
