Re: h22a swap wont start

is your fuel pump kicking on? listen for the hum when you turn the key to the on position.. and like what was said above check for spark.

Re: h22a swap wont start

When you swap an engine you need to swap the crank sensors, distributor and other stuff from the original engine or the new engine won't start.

Re: h22a swap wont start

Pull 1 of the plugs to check if ur gettin spark, to check all u do is pull it out connect the wire back to it stick it to ur tongue and have someone try to crank the car if ur gettin spark you'll know it. This is the most effective way to check and the most dangerous, " please do not try this" if your gettin spark check and see if your gettin fuel,listen for the fuel pump to kick on when you turn the ignition on you will hear a humming noise from the back of the car, if it comes on make sure ur gettin fuel to the injectors, to check this, on the fuel rail you'll see the fuel line on the passenger side of the car "USDM" car oppisite for "JDM" slightly loosen the banjo nut to see if fuel leaks out if it does your good. All this and still not running.Switch the dizzy, check fuses. And all the other common sense stuff

Re: h22a swap wont start

I can't find a thread on what I'm looking for, so I'll just hijack this one and try to continue in a somewhat similar direction. Didn't do an engine swap, but on Sunday after driving to church, my car wouldn't start. It turned over, but wouldn't ignite. So my dad sticks a hanger (the kind in your closet) in the red battery connector, and it turns on. So I drove straight to autozone and got that flexible lead stuff they tell you to put on the battery posts. That worked for 3 more start ups until the next day. Same thing. cranks but wont fire.
But if it's my battery the lights inside shouldn't turn on at all right?
To be honest I think it's my main relay because when I tried yesterday I didn't hear the fuel pump turn on, or the 3 clicks. But before I go pay 100+ dollars on that, what fuses do I check? Sorry for my ignorance lol
