    keep at it man there are always issues when you go this kinda job. It will end up being something stupid no doubt so take it easy and dont get worked up. Thats the best advice I can give you I been there before, when you start gettin pissed you start making mistakes if you need a hand lemme know.

    Like he said, I don't know too many people that have swapped engines without going through a bit of trial & error afterwards to get it right. You be fine. Just walk away from it for a little while (week, month, whatever LOL) and refresh.

    When I did the engine swap in the Xterra last year, it happened to me too. Got it all done, tried to start it, nothing, not a sound. Checked everything, found the main ground wire was not connected. Fixed that, still nothing. Ended up being the starter. I put the solenoid on backwards. After that, ran fine.
    Never blame the beer. It's only there to lend a hand.

    i hope you get it back up and running, if you have my luck when you rip stuff out and put it back for some reason i always have extra parts that i have no clue where it came from. I think the trolls lay extra parts on things so when you take it apart it just shows up lol

    lol what makes it worse is i used parts from my old motor, so i have extra bolts laying around and im panicky that i left some out (but i didnt...lol) the only thing wrong (as of right now) is that damn CPS got ripped out.

    yeah the ones for xj's are a lot cheaper, the auto and manuals are 2 different ones, and for some stupid ass reason, the one for the manual tranny is way more expensive.
