I Got SCREWED On My CHEAP 350z ENGINE *Or Did I?*

I bought a 2003 Nissan 350Z for $1,500 that should've found a new home in a salvage yard. It came with two engines, one seized up and one that was pulled from a parts car and was ready to drop in. Once I got the engine in and went to start it things looked bad. And then I made a phone where things got even worse, it was doomed from the start. But these things happen.

As much as you buy there, O'Reillys really should deliver to you.

Turns over way too fast. Usually hear that when valves are damaged or rings are gone. Hopefully it is just massively retarded valve timing.

That Motul oil is the best. I've been using it in my Benz for years and the motor is quiet at any temperature. It doesn't burn plus when I get the Blackstone tests done it shows that the oil could have been used for even longer as it has so many additives.

I'm an hvac service tech, I put my combustion analyzer probe in the exhaust of my car to test a new sensor. It shot over 2000k ppm of CO in a few seconds. Be very careful starting any car with the garage door down my man. Especially if you're taking a video and no one is around. Hate to see anything happen.

I had to buy a battery the other day and I fell over at how much the prices have gone up. I went to Wal-mart and bought theirs because it was like $70 cheaper than Advance or Autozone and we don't have O'Reillys just yet. 800 CCA I think group 78, $88 in Wal-mart, $165 anywhere else.

Sometimes that's just how it works, you beat your brains out trying to figure it out and it's just something simple. I usually have to just walk away and take a break and collect myself for a bit. Is why I could never work in a shop.

Not familure with that car but I have had simular troubles with other cars that ended up being fuel systems that were difficult to prime. Some cars have a very difficult time priming. Next time try a little starter fluid, not to start the car but to verify you have good spark and timing. It is a very easy way to check without breaking out the scanners or even pulling a spark plug. Just give her a shot of juice and crank her over. If everything is working It will start for a second or two and then stall. Then you just have to figure out how to purge the fuel lines.

If you want to have some real fun: install a JDM engine. Starter is on the wrong side. Not a big deal as the engine & trans design take JDM & USDM into account. But, the wiring harness is different, which is okay if you're installing a non-rev-up in a non-rev-up car, or a rev-up in a rev-up car. If not, get ready for some soldering and then realize that, though the ECM harness connector fits the ECM, that the pinout is entirely different. Also, the engine will crank with the ECM completely disconnected, so cranking isn't an indication of correct wiring. And so on. I spent weeks on that. Great video, but not generating a lot of sympathy here. :D

hello the problem is that the MAF is damaged. more no error appears in the ECU so it starts and shuts down. Try unplugging and it will turn on but with a strong gasoline smell.

Yeah, ECU controlled motors... I have had same wins as you have after clutching at straws. dodgy connection may be you fixed by plugging and unplugging sensors in. If Cam and crank was out could it of been stuck cam phasers/vct that oil pressure and 0 oil pressure after failed crank and you let off the starter motor has freed up returning cam timing back to being correct. a cam out of time would reduce compression at cranking speed. Just a wild guess

Is there a chance the engine got a little flooded while dealing with sensor issues, and checking compression dried out a couple cylinders? I had a 3000GT VR-4 years ago that I accidentally flooded while doing some maintenance.

350's are SUPER picky about their CAM and Crank Sensors. If you had a code in the ECU, then its typically a no start fail safe error. I would recommend hitting up NicoClub and getting the factory service manual if you haven't done so. To everyone saying LS swap it... you'll end up spending around $6K on swap parts and adapters. For something a bit different, look into doing a VR30 swap, this can be done for under $5K. Everything bolts in like its made for it. Leaving you to handle a custom wiring harness. There is even an Arduino based solution to get the stock dash working 100% on the new motor if you go that way.

As soon as he had less than 20% difference of compression from each cylinder I knew the motor was good, did a lot of engine work over the years in dealerships and private garages. Those damn marks on the crank and cam gears have to be in harmony or you run rough or get a no start, basically any engine uses that theory. I think the Ecu wipe away cleared out all your faults so that wAs a computer not mechanical no start. I’m happy you figured it out

I know you had a shut off valve on that gas line but Jesus way to play with your life hypothetically what about it the vibration would have caused that ball valve to just shimmy a little open those Sparks would have definitely send you flying and so would have done it or a Sawzall they cause no sparks

That would make sense mr. Ross I worked for used car dealership a lot of 2017 Kia's Hyundais Nissans Fords and most of the problems that they had when I would replace sensors we'd have to take them to the dealership to get them basically an ECU reset or as they would call it a ECU update I wouldn't know if it updated anything face would always stayed all you shouldn't see improved mileage and blah blah blah but I just fixed them send them on their way
