Okies, this 'new' engine is looking like a waste of time and money.
Been running badly since being fitted, tonight it threw the EML on with a knock sensor error which may explain this, then followed up with a high voltage error on the second lambda.
Sounds fine, switch to the knock sensor from my old engine, however the engine has used up most of its oil since Monday. Started to sound a little noisy on the way home tonight, then the oil light started flickering on a mile from home. Left it to stand for an hour and the dipstick was bone dry, not any oil to be seen.
Given the valve stem seals are likely shot what with the major blue smoke from start-up, I cannot see the sensible side of sorting it all out.
So, the likelihood is the end of **02 *** is nigh Annoyed and piddled off to say the least, but I knew any second hand engine was a gamble and may not pay off.
Which leads me to - how do you split a car? I obviously know the mechanics of taking bits off, but what do you do with the shell afterwards? There are a fair amount of parts worth selling on, wheels, interior, lights, blue LED parts etc etc, but once the sold parts have gone how do you dispose of what may be an un-rolling shell?
