    Plaegue II

    yeah just thought i move this thread under stock engine bay components to see if i get any hits okay if any body has read any of my threads could see that my car is basicly plaegued with problems. My car didnt start worth a Sh*t, My Transmission was gone, I have the leaky passenger floor problem, Engine rod was broke in half. (The list grows...) Well i started fresh and bought a b18b1 from a 99 for a deal that was a STEAL. Along with that a new transmission for a good price. Well after completing the worlds longest engine swap (4 weeks) I finished and ran into 3 problems. After puting coolant,oil, and trans fluid into the car, I noticed the coolant draining from one of the worst place imaginable. The back of the engine, right there at that tube where it meets the waterpump going to the thermostat problem. 2 was that i still havnt found how to put the water temp sensor on the new block since b18b1's have no hole for it on the back of the block where it used to go. I read the Engine swap guide and still stumped on how u move it to the thermostat housing. Now the whole reason i made this thread was my electrical problem. The other 2 dont really matter to me cause their not that easy of a fix but do-able. But I charged the battery and was about to do the engines first crank. I get into the car and hear a weird clicking noise coming from the seatbelt clicker thing. I turn the key to the on position and the lights come on in the dash but no beep. I know the problem with this is something to do with the Seat belt control unit. (little box by the ECU) SO i crank it and the car doesnt turn on. I check if the spark is good coming out the distributor and its okay. Loosen the fuel hose to see if i got preasure but have nothing even though the engine light comes on for 3 seconds to tell me the fuel pump is primed. I Turn the key back to off and my oil light and some other light are dim but still on. and the clicking from the seat belt come back on. I disconnect the little control unit cause the noise was pissing me off. I turn on my lights to see if they come on but all stay off even my fogs. turn the key back to on and step on the brake to shift the car into neutral. The shiftlock silanoid did not disengage to let me shift out of park. I some how pressed the horn to honk but instead of noise the Oil light got brighter. Does any body got any input? Really could use some. I've been looking over schimatic over schmatic and located a problem could be on fuse no.23 but i got to check if i might be right. Anybody?

    Can't believe I got through all that. whew... I usually don't read novels.

    Anyway, you need to try a little harder to organize your post so the reader doesn't give up half way thru. Try seperating your ideas and questions with new paragraphs or something. Alrighty then, on to your post.

    Congrats on your good deal, I hope it does work out that way. I am confused about the way you describe your water leak, is it at the waterpump or at the thermostat housing, my b18a has these at opposite ends of the block. My engine has the coolant temp switch at the thermostat housing, so maybe you just need to get a thermostat housing with the switch.

    As for your electrical problem, I don't know about the seat beeps, but check your battery and ground connections for looseness.

    As for no fuel, did your CEL light come on and stay on, or did it go off after a couple seconds? Cause maybe your main fuel relay has gone out. And isn't there a switch on the Auto tranny that won't let the engine turn over unless your in park or nuetral, maybe check that switch. Good luck and I hope you find the help you need.
