TheGlassMaker Yea I know I keep telling myself this is the first time this engine has been started since I pulled it from a totalled focus and transplated into a previously spi powered car. It will have a few bugs to fix.

TheGlassMaker Yea if for some reason something major turns up which would require another engine or major engine overhaul. It will get sold as is, minus the wheels. Or parted out and junked. I can't afford to replace it any time soon. I'll use the money to fix my ranger and call it a day.

TheGlassMaker Well something is wrong with it. the guy at the dealership said he started it right after the reprogram and it sounded really bad so he shut it off. When he went to restart it, it would only click. I had my wife start it when I looked and listened under the hood. I could hear the starter clicking and see the belt spin extremely slow. So I think when he started it the first time the starter stuck on and was grinding against the fly wheel, then it fried it. Now it's too weak to turn the engine over. I had no choice but to leave it there and let them look at it, but they can't look at it till monday.
