When I start my car it runs rough and wants to shut off, the little wrench is on, I then disconnect the battery to reprogram the computer and drive it, gets better. Day later same thing happens again.

You cannot just reset the computer to clear the warning lights! You need to connect the OBD code reader and read the codes that will determine the problems you are having! When you have the codes post them here and we can assess your problem!

YOU NEED A NEW MECHANIC ASAP. It is an elecrical problem, you have a sjhort somewhere. Main computer could be bad or need service. Your mechanic probably broke it or shorted it out.

All I can say is do some research online find a REPUTABLE shop and let them drive it until it dies. Three things are needed for an engine to run: spark, fuel, compression. I doubt it is a compression problem being that it is a new engine. Something is causing either spark or fuel to drop out, a good mechanic should be able to quickly identify what is missing from the equation. Find a shop with a lab scope that can test sensors that send signals to the engine computer. It could be as simple as a fuel pump getting hot and quitting. Good Luck!

Had to replace an engine, car still will not start, mechanic says the computer have to be reprogramed or replaced? Need some information for my own knowledge

I don't know why replacing an engine would cause the computer to have to be reprogrammed or replaced. If the engine was replaced with the same type and calibration of the engine that the vehicle was originally equipped with, everything should simply bolt and snap in. If everything was installed correctly and all connections were made properly, you should be able to twist the key and drive away.

My biggest question would be this: Was the old engine still running when it was determined that it needed to be replaced? If the answer to this question is yes, then the next question is how can a working computer go bad from replacing an engine? IT CAN"T!!! --- What changed during the process?

Depend of the Model and Engine size.
Some of this Computer need to be Programed with the Vin number and Theft code,
To work correctly.
But the first step I can Recomend is Get the Vehicle Scanned to see if there any available code.
To do the Right procedure related with the code. ..
But some times even when you Have programed the computer but if the BODY computer has a problem will prevent the car to running.
When the Engine run for about 5 seconds, is mean the Theft system is activated.
Are a few step to program the ECM installed on the car.
But is a little complicated because all the Accessories need to work ok. Door locks, Horn, Lights.
Door lock cylinders and Trunk lock cylinder.

Try with the scanner, first.
But if you need some information let me know.
I'm a mechanic and have information for all Vehicles.

Thank you for use fixya....

At various times all the warning lights go on/off

abs circuit board normally also can cause no speedo /1st you need to have volvo read the code and give you a print out or just throw money out the car window? generic scan tools are very limited on codes and history
