Hi all, I recently hydrolocked my engine and threw a rod, so I have replaced my engine with another 1.6 zetec se.
After 2 days swapping and fitting new clutch and swapping flywheel etc it came the time to start it up...
And it doesn't start! cranks fine occasionally makes a cough of life then returns to normal cranking.
My old engine was FYDB this new one is FYDA, would that make any difference?
I have done the following to rectify:
Checked and cleaned plugs. Spark ok.
Fitted Crank and cam sensors from old engine
Had fuel coming through pipes at bulkhead, but plugs were dry, so used injector rail from old engine- plugs now wet on cranking.
Intake manifold fitted from old engine due to sensor.
Wiring harness for injectors, idle air valve and above sensor- due to new engine not having sensor.
Tried with both coil packs
Key recognised upon entry
Fuel pump primes.
EML on when cranking but goes out but comes back on.
OBD Scan showed P0320- Ignition speed? cant remember all of error message, hence swapped crank and cam sensors.
Any help very much appreciated- getting close to giving up, don't want to give up
