Question about 1995 Buick LeSabre

1 Answer

Changed the Engine and not running

I changed the motor and hooked up the wire harness to everything and the car won't start. It runs if you spray a LITTLE ether but it acts like it is not getting fuel, I heard the engine run when we first put it in and it purs fine. What do I need to check now? We even rechecked the wire harness connections and they are all hooked up. I am stuck and don't know whats next. Please help

My car was running fine oil had just been changed a week before ,someone tryed to change my thermostat but couldn't get it off and assured me he put everything back so the next day I'm driving and...

Sounds like a wire from a harness was not put back in place after the thermostat change and possibly was touching the hot engine block and melted the insulation and shorted out. Since your engine cut out, it could be the supply line to your engine control module( basically the coil and distributor in older cars) that supplies the spark to your spark plugs.
That smell came from something go to your engine dept fusebox and look for a blown fuse in the ECM or any other engine control module. If you find a blown fuse, then search your wire harness for the burnt out wire, probably close to where the thermostat was, and repair the wire and insulation

Could misfire being detected have to do with wiring harness

Try to get it scanned for codes. Maybe an intake leak. Get a can of carb cleaner and spray it around the intake manifold while it's running. Dont hit the exhaust with it though. Spray around the injectors and the intake manifold. If it changes the idle of the car then its most likely the intake gasket.

I sprayed off the engine on 98 camry and it bogs now at 2000 rpm

disconnect all the wire harness plugs spray them with WD-40 or equivalent, spray the entire engine electrical system also, then blow off with high pressure air, run the motor till it is up to temp and cross your fingers. NEVER SPRAY WATER ON YOUR CARS WIRING

1997 mazda 626 won't start.

Are the plugs wet with fuel?
Check for spark. No spark? it may be the ignition module.

Plugs dry and spark present? No fuel?Spray a little starting fluid and see if it will run on that.
Then check pump fuses and for fuel pump noise.

Check engine on

This goes to the o2 sensors,you will have to change the harness to match the o2 sensors,unless you changed the manifolds also(exhaust)If you did,just retrieve the o2 sensors from the other engine(Original)and place them in the manifolds you have now.

I have a 92 Chevy 1500 with a 4.3. 7 outta 10 times I need to spray ether into throttle body to get truck started. Once its going, it runs like a champ. I just replaced the motor and everything that was...

Try replacing the fuel filter and check the fuel pressure at the shredder valve. Low fuel pressure from a week fuel pump or dirty fuel filter will cause hard starts, a bad ground will also do the same thing so check the ground wire for the fuel pump which is separate from the main wire harness to the fuel pump sending unit.

Good luck and thank you for using FIxya.

Tuned up a 1993 chevy cavalier has spark won't start

Spray aerosol carb cleaner into the throttle body while an assistant tries to start the engine. If it runs for a few seconds then quits, you are not getting fuel into the engine. Check the fuses. You might have blown the fuse for the fuel injectors (possible if you removed any of the injector harnesses) or the fuel pump relay.
