Can you pull the motor with the torque convertrr on my 5.4 locked and I can turn it over and get to the bolts
That really sucks man. Never been in your shoes, but you could try to take the oil pan off and pry between the block and crankshaft to break it free if you aren't planning on trying to rebuild the engine. Or if you can't get it off or just want/need better leverage, just pull the engine and trans at the same time and then muscle the crank.
ok,so i finally got it back from the shop yesterday with the new motor,before i got home the cel came on,i pulled the codes and get a po325 knock si ckt (b1), I am assuming this is the knock sensor,but can someone confirm this,the truck seems to run fine though,where is it located and how hard to change? thanks
The shop that installed your engine should warranty their work... If you paid them to do it you shouldn't have to deal with problems like that on your own
P0325 is for the knock sensor, its located in the valley of the block under the intake manifold that will need to come off. Maybe its un-plugged. It's as easy to change when the intake is out of the way.
2000 F150 4x4 - 4.6 to 5.4 swap - Fresh 1997 shortblock, ported NPI heads, NPI cams, NPI intake, JBA headers and stock y-pipe. Tuned for 180 RWHP and 285 RWTQ - 4r70w
stangbang,thanks for all your help through this, without going into a long story about the shop im dealing with, im on my own,they put a 97 block in and used my heads and intake,will the sensor be in the same place on the 97? and should it plug into my wiring harness? just wandering if this could be the problem and they just left it unpluged for that reason or something else
