Starter turns engine over twice and then stops completly
I recently overheated and the car died. Upon trying to restart the car I turn the key and hear a single click. Thinking it was the starter I took the start to autozone to have it tested and they said it passed. I also exchanged my battery just in chase. After putting the starter and the battery back in I try to turn it over again. I will get two, sometimes 1 turn over and then the starter will just stop. the gauge lights will come on and turn off when trying to start then come back on once I stop. There is no check engine light after the initial few seconds its on when you first turn the key and the fuel pump engages. I am wondering if it is possible the engine seized up but it will roll in drive and reverse (automatic) but I wasnt able to get it to turn using the crank pulley and a socket. Not sure how much force I am suppose to use to turn it but it was extremely hard and I was in fear of possibly breaking something so I didnt over due it.
Summary: When I turn the key I will get 1 or 2 very slow cranks from the starter and then nothing at all. No noise no spark.
Upon inspecting the engine I do see gas on the fuel line as well as tips of spark plugs
I can push the car in drive and reverse but I havent been able to turn it using a socket and the crank pulley.
When I try to start it the positive wire on the battery terminal to the starter gets warm. im assuming due to a bad ground which they all looked good or because the starter is pulling to much power because turning the engine is to challenging due to it possibly being “partially” seized… paradoxical
