Rebuild Cost of Engine


Best Answer Decojuicer , 26 August 2017 - 03:23 PM

After watching a couple of videos, I realize that I'm supposed to have a Cam Tool Set (OTC 6682) in order to change the timing chain. None of my local parts stores rent that tool though. Is it necessary? Go to the full post

Well, the bolts on the power steering pump were all tight ( I got an 1/8 of a turn on one of them), and it still seems to be leaking. I guess I'll just ask them to check it at the dealership tomorrow.

It turns out that it wasn't the PATS. It was a loose nut on the starter solenoid. And the power steering pump is leaking from a bolt that the Ford mechanic said that I wasn't supposed to take off. Apparently I broke a seal. It's for the return, so it's not under high pressure. I'll pull it off tonight and put some Permatex on it and see if that solves the problem. If not, I'll replace the pump on Saturday. It did start though, and sounds great.

Pretty sweet she fired up for ya!!!!  You deserve a big "Datta-Boy cuz not many would give it a go these days.  I built and installed two motors many moons ago and still feel the satisfaction to this day.  Put a built 460 Police Interceptor in a black 1977 T-Bird.  Bout 5 miles per gallon but pretty quick for a huge hunk of metal.

It felt great driving it home from the dealership. However, the battery light came on about halfway through the 7 mile trip. It's a brand new battery, and I replaced the alternator about 3 days before the car went down. A quick Google search suggests that the problem may be that the alternator has a module in it that wasn't replaced when it was remanufactured. Which means that I may have to replace the alternator...again.

I bet you can pull the engine, replace the alternator, and reinstall the engine in under 51 minutes! Seriously, they should at least refund you. Was it a motorcraft reman, did you get it from NAPA, ...?

ROFLMAO!! I don't think I'm that good. Hahaha

I got the alternator from Advanved Auto Parts, and it is under warranty. It's just a giant PITA to replace it. I'm going to throw the code reader on it tomorrow.
