Bad luck... Try:
1. Dry all electrical connections, fuses, sensors
2. Change all engine fluids (oil, coolant)
3. Spray some oil (50ml) to each cylinder
4. Pull the your car with other vehicle
5. Reinsert spark plugs
6. Try to start it

Think the main problem would be not the engine itself, but all electronics (especially sensors like maf and ECU)

The head on the motor you bought is bad; or the head gasket is leaking; or the rings in the 2 center pistons are bad. 30 lbs is far too low of a compression, and 5 lbs is garbage. They should be closer to 80 or 90 psi and not have more that 5% variance between the cylinders.
The first thing you will have to do is pull the head off and check it. Or you can take it back to the salvage yard you got it from, show them the results from the compression test and either get another motor, or have them refund your money.

Replacing a blower motor in a 04-08 Suzuki Forenza

After experiencing the cold this winter because of my blower motor giving out i thought i would share how to replace it.
mine went out gradually, worked a few day then stopped and progressively got worse.

you will need a mid sized, short star (Phillips) head screw driver (especially for the back), needle nose pliers, utility knife, patience

you will find the blower motor under the passenger side dash to the right, unless you are flexible feel for a round 5 inch cylinder, you can use a large mirror with a stand, you will need to pull the carpet down, to the left of the cylinder you will find a rectangle "seat" this where the blower locks into place, to the right is the connection cable, evenly around the cylinder are your 5 hex head screws, they are brass in color so not hard to spot, (you can use a ratchet drive for the front 3) loosen and remove each screw, along the fire wall under the blower motor is rubber insulation, you will see a 6 inch bump, using your utility knife cut along the top and notch down both sides of the first cut, this will help with removal and replacement of the motor, pull down on the blower motor and slid it out, this may take a little careful wiggling, once out use your pliers to squeeze the side and pull the connecting cable from the socket, the connection are angled like ' - so this no way to mess up reconnecting the replacement motor, I bought mine from the wreaking yard for $32 (had them pull it for $10 included in the price) new costs $75 and $160, your choice, the wreaking yard bench tested it for me so i know it works but here you can check for your self if in fact the blower motor is the problem.
connect the cable to the replacement motor, turn on your ignition and turn on your fan, if your fan spins you are good to go.
replacing the blower motor is a reverse of the above.

Have fun

2004 F150 5.4L lot of water in oil and water leaks from back passenger side of engine. Can't see exactly where since there is no room to see back there.

Some of those big Ford engines take up so much room it is necessary to climb into the bay (with power off, of course) to get a good look. It may be necessary to put your truck on a lift to locate the source of the leak.

Drivers side window (electric) has stopped rolling up. Any ideas on how expensive that will be to fix? And how long it should take to fix?

Yea..switch should be checked first for power in and power out. If switch about $80-$150. If switch OK then probably window motor/regulator & that's about $200-300

Looking for this part from Panasonic CD or DVD player: PPN13KA12C

Is your Lexus 2/3 generation Navigation system not working? Famous 'No disk detected' message?
I was lucky a month ago and got a used one motor. Repaired my DVD and the GPS works fine. Then I wanted to buy couple more motors in case my wife's Navi goes bad and to have some spare ones. I bet I was searching under both PPN13KA12C and PPN-13KA12C (proper designation) for over a month every day, couple of times a day, and nothing, until today. Google PPN-13KA12C and go to SMC Electronics - CD and DVD Repair Parts to buy them for $6.50 plus shipping. Hurry, they won't last.

Water leaking in

did you replace windshield?
do you have a sunroof?
these are the only places water could leak.
it could also be the condensation from the dehumidifier of the AC. maybe they forgot to reconnect the hose to expell the water.
