Swapping motor an granny was wondering what models with the 2.0 would fit or if it had to b a forenza

I have changed the coil, plugs and wires and reset timing and replaced cam sensor as well since it failed ohm testing and still will not startup completely... I am weaiting on OBD2 scan tool to read into it more and reset pcm...any suggestions? Idler pulley had blown and both have been replaced with no knocking , ping, good compression on all 4 cylinders...I have tried everything a PT shadetree can do - intereference motors i now know are a pain, but for $500 and clutch and breaks and transmissions done, i need it for my daughter to go to college.

But u can put in drive it will go but doesn't seem to shift ! Is it burnt clutches or bad sensors

When I start the engine, the sound is too loud. Sometimes it goes away after 1 min and sometimes I have to wait for up to 10 min for the sound to goes off.

No matter if im driveing or parked i can not use my Ac or heat it shuts my car off if i turn it on

I need the diagram so that I can print it out.

At times will change gears fine then again will just jerk as if wants to change but doesn't. Could it need fluid or could it be transmission sensors? Has 110000 miles on it. Motor replaced at 82000 miles.

I make sure starting wheel is like cked & have turned key around but it won't turn ignition. How much to repair?

Just would be nice to have illumination lights and be able to see the radio stations.I checked the fuses that I could find but not sure what may be wrong. Any ideas?

Got tb car from my aunt who stopped driving it for like a year due to multiple problems.
I replaced the battery and got it running enough to get it home. Ran really rough and smelled like old gas 2 bottles of fuel conditioner and its a lil better. Now when I start it up after it sits it acts like its gonna die when I press the gas. When I'm on my way to work if I have to stop at a light it either stalls completely when gas is pressed or just hesitates and goes. Have had a few back fires and 2 times it died while doing about 55. Cel is on during the drive to work it starts blinking sometimes it stops blinking. I know when its blinking it really stalls and strains to keep going. Misfire code from auto zone. I don't know if I should start replacing things with out reason and my wallet tells me I def can't do that lol. Any idea what can be causing the misfire?

Trouble shifting from park to d, check engine light on, thud when shifting gears, hard to take off when at a stop sign, scramble on panel where it shows p,r,n,d. When in d car just reeves and won't accelerate sometimes. Autozone showing code p0700. Transmission control module. Is this the same part as a transmission range sensor?

is there any help on this? changed radiator and now vehicle is kicking in and out of gear while driving.

What do I have to Remove

Door locks sometimes lock and unlock by them selves. Lights will not turn off have to disconnect. Had to replace water over flow today (nipple broke off) Did not allow car to over heat. Now seems to not start as smoothly and when in park you first step on gas to get RPM's up it sort of sputters? Not to mention almost threw up when saw worth of car. Nothing close to what I'm paying or still paying. Not even in the same solar system.

P0128
P0420
P0700
P161B
P2106
P2110
It seems like the throttle actuator may be the source of the problem. The engine surges intermittently. the exhaust smells very rich. when this occurs, if I regulate the accelerator the speed fluctuations seem to smooth out. I think the transmission P0700 and 161B, 0420 are symptoms of the fluctuating throttle.
Any thoughts or perspective would be greatly appreciated. Cheers

I put in 2 quarts and its still not starting

my car starts fine but as im driving ill get stopped by a red light. as I start to press the gas to go once again my RPMS will raise but my car will creep, until it starts to stall out. took it to a mechanic the check engine light came on but when codes popped up nothing for my engine. ive gotten in almost three accidents with this happening and they cant figure out whats wrong. ive replaced the radiator, they said that would fix my problem but it didn't. I need help

I just recently replaced all the valves myself when I bought the car a few weeks ago, i got the car running , but when i drive it for a minute or less it stalls on me, the engine is in great condition, i need to know if my transmission is bad or it just needs fluids
Or anything else . Please let me know asap , thanks

My transmission is sealed but I think I found the bolt at the bottom left side of my radiator to put it in.Is this the right bolt how will I know?
