Hello guys I have came to the form to ask for advice on a strange situation. I recently did a head gasket job on my 2012 Cruze 1.4l, usual head job but it was sitting around for about 8 months before I took it apart. replaced the head, water pump & outlets, thermostat, valve cover etc etc. I put everything back together and triple checked all my connections, but when I go to start it all I hear is the starter pinion pushing out (click) but it doesn’t spin/crank! So I think maybe the starter is bad, so I replaced it. Same thing! Then I buy a new battery and new ground cable, and it happens again! Switched the fuses and relays around too, I can hear the fuse box relay clicking before the starter engages, but it sounds like it just doesn’t want to turn over. The engine is free and easy to turn over by hand, so I don’t know what it could be now! Please any help will be appreciated greatly! I Was so excited to drive it after the rebuild and I got nothing.
