I bought a car and the previous owner had replaced the injectors and there was an oring stuck in the fuel rail, causing cyl 2 to fill with raw fuel. the starter turned the engine over about 1 revolution then just bound up like it was hitting something solid. IT WAS. Once I pulled the plugs and drained cyl 2, and found and fixed the oring issue, it cranked freely and fired right up.
Thanks for the recommendation brndck, I essentially plan to make myself one of those with the push button start.
I did forget to clarify that I did turn the engine over by hand to verify that the engine wasn't stuck and I was able to complete a full revolution by hand just fine.
