Some people might remember me from the email lists from a few years ago. Ok, heres the deal. I have a 92 red egt, and blew the auto trans out for the 5th time and put the car to sleep. I then picked up a new trans & while replacing it, I noticed a nice sized crack along 2 of the cylinder walls. So I decided to replace the motor as well. They came from a 94 protege that was totaled due to a rear end collision. So, I put the new motor & trans in, and started it. Immediately the car went to high idle at 3800 rpms. So, for the past 1 1/2 years, the car has been sitting (I got an Infiniti G20 instead). Now I wanna get the car going again. So, I charge up the battery, etc. and try to start it. CLICK. Nothing else, just a click. I tried to manually turn the motor, but couldn´t. I don´t remember if it´ll turn with the timing belt on or not. I don´t think the engine seized, cuz I´ve only run it like 15 minutes total (not recently), with mobil 1 oil, and full of water. Does anyone have any suggestions? I have a son now, and my wife wants the Infiniti, and quite honestly, I want my egt back. Please help.
