2008 Cobalt engine replaced

Asked by May 31, 2015 at 11:40 AM about the 2008 Chevrolet Cobalt

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We replaced an engine on a 2008 cobalt. We checked the battery and replaced the hoses
and filled fluids. But car will do nothing when we try to start it. The lights go out and we
hear nothing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Could be any number of things but I'd start by making sure the grounds are all good. Sounds like something either dirty or not quite tight.
