Check the oil pressure; did you drop the sump on the new engine to see if it was clean of sludge? If not; you need to do it asap to see what it looks like in there. If it is sludge or the screen is clogging it will do damage to that engine as well. If not already installed you should have the PCV Upgrade # 6 installed. How did the other engine die?

Well to start, the blinking check engine light means it has a catalyst damaging misfire. is it a 4 cyl or v-6? possible ignition cassette failure. all the smoke and turbo issue could be faulty turbo.

Trouble starting 04 maxima then once it starts put it in gear and nothing happens.


Modern vehicles need minimum voltage to operate the electronics. It is possible for the vehicle to start, but not run properly dye to the low voltage. Most likely your battery is low, or bad and we intend charge. Also your alternator may be bad.

Hi, as long as the light is not blinking, you can drive the car safely. As soon as you can get the car scanned, send us the trouble code. We cannot guess the reason the light is on, but we can tell you a lot more if you can get the trouble code using a scanner. Perhaps during your drive to Portugal there will be an opportunity.

Dash lights blink, engine stalls then runs on 1997 Buick LeSabre


Given the amount of electronic's on your vehicle , an control modules , have a full vehicle scan done . Not at a parts , thier diagnostic tool will not check BCM -body control module , Instrument cluster , air bag module codes . Your vehicle maybe have communication problem between modules . Suggest you google GM class 2 serial data communication network .

Over drive light on shifter blinks and check engine light is lit.


You need to have it scanned for codes. The flashing overdrive light means it has trouble codes that pertain to the transmission.
