Revving any engine, diesel engine for locomotives, ocean going ships with huge diesel engines, aircraft engines, car/truck/suv gasoline or diesel engines are not revved when they're cold for several reasons. All internal combustion engines need oil lubrication immediately upon startup. Oil pumps take time to pressurize the oil galleries to begin lubricating ...

No, the ecu will be programmed to match each engine. Also check if they both have the same sensors. Best to have the engine with its matching loom and ecu.

WD40 will help make the engine not start. Try a teaspoonful of petrol into the air intake instead. Fresh of course, but you will need to take the plug out and dry it after the WD40.

I always give any engine 30 seconds or so to get oil pumped around. Then, I also wait for the engine to start to get warmed up a bit - like the temperature gauge starts to move before demanding full power. My car is on 233k now...

I grew up with the saying "There's no replacement for displacement" when referring to engine size, performance, etc. Does that saying still hold true today? First of all, you're kind of mixing apples and oranges. Here's why ... The saying of "There's no replacement for displacement" is not about reliability (as the 2nd part of your ...

These EJ25 motors are prone to head gasket leaks. Judging by the white smoke, the first thing I would do is a leak down test. I have a strong suspicion you're burning coolant, which could also be the cause of the misfire. The main problem years are 1996 through 2004. The most common engine to have head gasket failures is the naturally aspirated (non turbo) ...

Super simple, but I reset the error codes with a little bluetooth OBDII scanner and the engine has come right!

A lot of people confuse the term to mean an increase in speeds and incredible boosts in performance. However, overdrive serves another purpose that doesn’t necessarily entail faster speeds.

Possibly a faulty spark plug, ignition lead to the plug, or a faulty ignition coil. If you are not getting a spark at one of the plugs, you will get unburnt fuel coming out of the exhaust and it would be running like that on 3 cylinders. Take the plugs out one at a time to find the one that looks wet with fuel. Then work back from there.

As Gary mentioned it could be the serpentine belt. If that is fine, another possibility is your thermostat is stuck closed. This would cause the coolant to boil. Would also likely cause overheating. And if the coolant is boiling over it can get on your serpentine belt, causing it to slip and degrade your power steering performance. Does the temp gauge ...

After trying everything, I tried rotating the crankshaft using a breaker bar and it wouldn't budge. I ended up selling the car. The person who bought the car later told me that a Rod had come loose from the crankshaft and thus the engine is toast!
