hello guys, im new to the forum and having a bit of an issue.
I recently done a engine swap for a 1.6 auto (2007) (same year engine, identical swap)

I bought the engine (running) with no issues, installed the engine and plugged it all in correctly. Trying to start it ran very boggy and then cut out. Now it will crank but will not start i have replaced/checked;
  • Spark: (new plugs and ht leads, sparking fine)
  • injectors: spraying fuel in correct pattern
  • compression is fine.
It occasionally throws up the code p2176

Could this cause the engine to not run at all? Its cranking and "trying" to start but not running at all

Any advice is appreciated!

We don't have that engine in the states. The code just means the engine hasn't run enough yet to likely set the idle position.
