Check for vacuum leaks and use a screw driver to hear where the noise in coming from. The motor you got could be bad. It could be running lean from a leak or maybe the front O2 sensor might need replacing. We tend not to recommend putting another SPI motor in and usually point towards doing a zetec swap.
Thanks! well i got a used engine and had a shop put it in, although this light is present and pretty much stuck, I really just planned to sell the car unfortuantly :/ but i wont get much in the condition its in although its probably just minor

i did see the one of the intake manifold nut or bolt was loose just now
