Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.
I am a little confused. If you knew it had a bad engine, what is your question?
You replaced the bad engine and then drove it to the dealer? Now it won't start? Why did you take it to the dealer?
Do you have any codes?
Well there is really no way of determining the problem with out a scanner. It could be a Cam sensor issue. But if you have no spark, you are going to have a code stored.
It is a used engine. It could be a Bad sensor, or connection problem. But if there is a code ( which I am sure there is ) that as you know would point to where the problem is so you can resolve it.
Do you have any more questions on this?
If it was a security issue, the horn and head lights would be going off, or the security light would be solid when the key is turned to the ON position.
If the engine is turning over and not starting you need a scanned to determine what is going on.
I had one question once that did a engine swap and had a bunch of codes. After looking at the wiring diagrams, I found one connector all the codes had in common and sure enough, the connector was not fully seated. So that is why codes are so important
Engine jobs today have so many sensors and harness connections that it is very easy to miss a plug.
Totally understandable. But if you work for BMW, you know it's one of those things where it could simply be a bad sensor or a connection issue.
Yes, if it's a long block swap it shouldn't know the difference , who knows if one of the sensors may have been damaged by the previous engine?
At the same time, if it was driving, vibration could have caused something to come loose as well
