Customer Question
1998 Saturn SW2, Had...

1998 Saturn SW2, Had a cracked head. Got another head from junk yard. That 1996 Saturn was rear ended real bad . Engine looked clean good shape.

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Is it an automatic or a manual transmission?

My car 200,000, car i got head from 126,000. Installed head put all back together . cranks but no start. I replaced the (CPS) last night. still no start. the tackometer should have some movment when i turn it over but it sits still.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '96 Saturn?

LS2

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

Shreader valve at fuel rail spits fuel hard when depressed, so i have fuel pressure,

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Tested spark to pluges no problem there.
