Ok. Long question..
2005 Toyota sienna, alternator
went out 2 months ago, replaced it..
About a month ago car ran hot fast, by time I could get it pulled over it was redlined.. wouldn't start again so I didn't push it.. ended up after tearing it down to be a piston ring..
So, we changed rings, head gasket, upper intake, basically everything you would have to do to do piston rings.
Got it back together and it wouldn't start. Had no power to the interrior, checked and found a break in the fuse block, replaced it..
Still wouldn't start. Checked relays, fuses, etc... ended up being bad starter
. Just changed the starter, now I get a click of the starter and what I can best describe as a clank when it tries to turn over... it's quick, it doesnt really "turn over" but after 2 or 3 tries it was like it drained power, quick... I had just charged the battery, after trying to crank it I put it back on the charger and it was down to 88%..
What the heck could I be looking at here and what's my next step????
