I just had my engine replaced (used) b/c the old one was mxing water and oil. Now that the new engine is in the car will not start. It sounds like it wants to turn over but wont. There is also an automatic starter on the car, do you think that has anything to do with the problem

Re: Changed Engine, Car wont Start
Well, usually the first crank takes a lot of extra juice from my experience. Try jumping it with another vehicle, connected and running. It may just need the extra power to crank it over the first time with the new engine.

when car won`t turn but clicks then the ( brushes of you starter are worn may be the man who replace used the old brushes ) its very simple thing but will get your car to start but you didn`t mention anything about fuses and relays if you haven`t replace them all then replace relays/fuse first you welcome any time sir .
Oh, one should make sure that the old rubber gasket didn't get stuck on the engine block where the filter is. Sometimes, people change their own oil and don't look at the old filter they took off, to see if the gasket came off and stuck to the engine block.
In that case, the new filter has a gasket, and the old gasket is stuck to the block, and you have two gaskets stuck together, which will leak.
This is classic case failed head gasket. You changed your oil 4 years ago?
There is more to this story I think. Maybe you changed the transmission oil 4 years ago and and now you have water in the trans? Not good. You have trans oil in the radiator? Not good. You have engine oil in the radiator? Not good. You have water in the engine? Not good. You have engine and trans oil in the radiator? Doubble not good.
You should have a reputable shop take a look at your 22 year old car to see if it is salvagable.
If it was white then you have oil mixing with the oil if it was sludge kind of milky then yes you need to have it checked, you could have a bad intake manifold gasket or a head gasket going bad. If you blow the head gasket it can cost you a lot of money to replace the damaged parts. Replacing the head gasket before it blows will save you from having to buy a new engine.
do you change the engine oil your car crosses the maximum miles with the old engine oil once your engine oil density become very low you will get the black smoke (or) you need to check the radiator water wether water and coolant is in correct level or not if it is in correct level you need to change the oil
ou should put some marvel mystery oil in each cylinder and turn the
engine over by hand.. Of course you have to remove all the plugs first
and leave them out until you get the engine ready. let sit for an hour
and repeat the process. Make sure the water and oil are changed. after
you have repeated the oil in the cylinders three times. You are ready
to try and start the engine. check all wiring and battery for proper
function. turn the engine over with the starter. Replace the spark
plugs (recommend new ones) and then try to start the engine.
The best way to start any engine that has been sitting for any time
longer than a year is to flush the old gas out. Gas that has been
sitting for too long will go bad unless a gas preservative was added to
it. Then change the oil and the oil filter. The coolant in the engine
block, and the radiator should be flush out, and only clean water she
be added without the thermostat. A lot of sediment from the iron in the
block and from the radiator will build up and the coolant. This a also
a good time to examine all rubber parts for cracks or leaks. It's would
also a good time to change the spark plugs and wires. Examine the
carburetor make sure its that it free of debris spider webs or any
thing else. It would ofnot hurt to change the fuel filter
pre-carburetor. All this with a fresh battery, and lots of luck you're
good to go.
