Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2 Answers


Did you pull on the wiring harness and disconnect something while ding the engine swap ?, Did you recharge the A/C system in the past few years, Did you check to see if you reconnected the transmission vacuum diaphragm line to the manifold vacuum after the engine swap ? And if you did reconnect it, When was the last time you changed the "vacuum modulator" on the transmission ?


Sounds like you missed a ground strap when you hooked everything back up. HTH. -Jim
