I recently turned my sr5 v6 pickup on its side and it didn't run but for a few seconds after it was turned over. We got it flipped back over within 5 mins and let it sit for about 4 days before trying to start it. When we tried starting it, it wouldn't even turn by using the starter. We tried pulling it down the road and doing a roll start in 3rd gear. When doing that it would try to turn over but seemed like something was stopping it. Any help? Thanks in advance.

I would pull all the spark plugs and try turning it over by hand. (You should have done that first) The engine might be hydo locked with oil or gas. But since you tried starting it with the pull method, you very well could have bent a rod by forcing it.

Thanks for the info. I pulled the plugs and rolled it in reverse and it freed up the motor right away. When I put the plugs back in it started right back up. No knocking or anything.
