Recently my battery needed to be replaced. I went to the auto store and got a new battery. Connected it to my car and realized that the pole were switched and I connected the wrong poles. Now that I replaced that battery with the correct one no lights come on in my car.

I was driving home one day on the highway. When i was approaching traffic i pressed in the clutch to downshift the car cut off. I pull over and the cars starts again. I go on about half a mile and i hear a slight clunk and it cut off again. When i pulled over and tried to start it it sounded like a power drill running. I get it towed did my research and it seemed like the timing. I checked the distributor rotor it didn't rotate but my camshaft is moving. The car has a f22b2 which is an interference engine.

I had just got my alternator bushings new. My battery light on my dash flickers, the temperature gauge bounces up during and before that occurs. The power surges and just earlier, I had no power pressing on the gas. I have no idea what it could be.
