At first engine was difficult to mate to gearbox(auto) but finally went together. After install complete, started right up and drove perfectly for few days with limited miles until noise began. When iremoved old engine, torque converter was still bolted to flexplate. Install was also done with torque converter attached to engine.
Hi, so I replaced front rotors, pads and a caliber and flushed brakes fluid and replaced spark plugs but after that I turn on the AC but it doesn't cool, The ac lines aren't cool as well, I can't hear the compressor working I'm not sure if they forgot to plug a sensor or something back when they most likely replaced the plug , what is the issue here and where I should look?

It uses a quart between oil changes. I have been changing the oil at 7,500 mile intervals. I have checked the engine over & there are no oil leaks. I assume that it is leaking between the valve guides. She bought the car new & hasn't had any problems with it. We are using 00-20 synthetic oil, which is recommended. Should we go to a heavier oil such as 5-20 or 10-30 synthetic? Thanks for any advice - John Larson
