I second what FireRanger said!! Most likely a cylinder is full of coolant in what is called hydrostatic lock, simple physics you can't compress a liquid!! But the good news is it was still running when you turn it off. Had it been running you may have bent a rod or cracked a piston.

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.
Torque it down till it breaks off, then back it off 1/4 turn.
