Seized engine (sort of) Sign In

I have a 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer with a 4.2 L inline 6 engine. I was driving and it suddenly stopped running. When I tried to start it the starter just clicked and wouldn't turn over. I took the inspection cover off the bellhousing and use the screwdriver to spin it backwards it took a little bit of effort but I was able to back it up and then it's completely free and I can spend it as much as I want to with the screwdriver. I disconnected the fuel pump so it wouldn't start but if I spin it with the starter it'll spin for about two or three revolutions and then I hear a slight squealing noise and it locks up again and won't move. If I go underneath Break It Loose with a screwdriver same thing it'll spin for a couple revolutions and stop again. any ideas?

You're wasting your time. It's time to start looking for another motor. That one is cooked.
