I just put a rebuild engine a month ago. It drove fine the first two weeks and than it just stopped. The engine turns over but will not start now. I have replaced the fuel pump,fuel pressure regulator and just recent replaced the fuel filter,crankshaft censor and the camshaft censor and still no luck. Help

Best Answer

Yes, have them both


well the pcm controls both of those. How about timing, I was assume that motor has a timing chain? did it get out of time somehow?

I really don't know about the timing. I would assume no cause the block is new


Can you get it back to the person who put the motor in. It doesnt sound like it will be something easy that you could do in the driveway.


I'm wondering if I got a bad rebuit engine


The place that sold me the rebuilt engine said that O'Reilly auto parts sells bad sensors. Is that possible


Yes I have recived bad "new parts" before


What brand would you recommend


I work at a dealership so I usually use factory parts.


Thanks for all your help and advice


Ok, this is weird. If you read my previous question about the van, I changed all those parts and still would not start. After trying to start it I finally drained the battery. Today I went out to start it and it was dead. I jumped it and I started right up. My question is by having the battery dead did I program the two sensors I changed earlier in the week
