Kevin:

Engines also seize for heat related tight fit conditions. Some of these are
piston diameter to cylinder wall diameter not sufficient, piston ring gap not
sufficient ( piston ring can grow shut. Further expansion causes the ring to
bind against the cylinder wall and results in an engine seize), and plain
bearings can also seize. Some of these can self heal if temperatures go down,
others cause damage.
