Qestion: Old or new engine, short or long block? Did you have the head off: check valve timing (timing belt) Are all the wire harnesses hooked back up? Check all grounds. Crank and/ or valve sensors in the right position? Check sparkplugs, wiring, injectors, do you get fuel, spark, Is the "check engine" light on. I have installed many neon motors and i usually replace the timing beltin the process.I have had a couple that didnt start when i was finished.first thing i would do check for spark,then if it has that i would poor a tiny bit of fuel into the throttle body, if it burps out of the throttle body then it is out of time,probably just one or two teeth.i then would take the alt. belt, power steering pump,harmonic balancer,and timng cover off.thrn bring the engine up to top dead center and line up your marks, crank pulley has to be set btdc(half a notch before the mark). reassemble in reverse order. good luck!!

no it would make the car break down

No, smoking at start up would probably be defective valve seals.

Would sure be helpful to know the make/model/year/engine size in order to give a proper answer...

You would need to carry over the entire harness including computer from the TBI engine.

The engine would probably be seized up. The starter would only make one clunk each time you turn the key to start.

Depends on the make and model of the engine, not the truck.

your question needs more detail - make and HP of engine would be a good start.

The engine needs fuel, compression and spark to run. You are missing one of those. Year, make, model and engine size would help us help you.

There is no set price without knowing the year, make, model, engine size and accessories.

I would start my licensing a decent game engine for a FPS. If you want to write your own engine, then I would suggest raising some capitol.

This is dependent on the Make model year and engine fitted to the automobile.

The best way to make a turbo engine quiet is to install a higher quality exhaust system. The engine compartment can also be lined with sound absorbent materials.

No. It would cause the check engine light to illuminate and fail an emissions test but it would start and run.

ECM is a common problem with this type of car engine

If you have to ask its better that you take it to a tech to make sure it will run

Could be many reasons. The year, make, model and engine info would be helpful. If the check engine light is on have it scanned for codes. This would be a good place to start.

User Avatar

the question doesn make sense but if you mean why does my engine light stay on when my car is started it means there is a problem in the engine whuch needs to be looked at by a mechanic

From 1988 to 1995 ALL the V-8 engines are the same and will interchange with NO problems. Answer to your question is, If the 350 that your wanting to install in the 94 is under the year 1988 then you will have to make some changes to the fuel system and engine sensors to make the engine run RIGHT. It would be to your best interest to install the correct engine. From 88 to 95 and you will have NO PROBLEMS and will be done with it.

To change a 460 Ford engine and make it displace 351 cubes, you would have to remove the 3.85" stroke crank, and install a crank with a 2.94" stroke. I do not know how to change the year on the engine.

This is too vague. Need to know the make of the engine to begin with.
