Is the coolant temp sensor connected and working properly? Is the valve timing correct?
Posted 06 July 2014 - 10:39 AM
Did you do the work yourself? If you didn't i would definitely check the timing, and the distributor for correct advancement. Even if you did, its really easy to make a mistake with the timing... it can be a real pain. Also make sure you don't have any vacuum leaks. So that black wire, you did ground it? I cant say what it is without a picture, but you could check your manual's wiring diagram and try to figure it out that way. Sounds like grounding it is the thing to do though. I would defiantly make sure your timing/advance is correct first, but then i guess its just about going through your essentials, Air, Fuel, Spark.

What exccactly do you mean by "rebuilt"
Did they just reseal the heads? Or was it actually rebuilt with new rings, bearings, valve guides, etc.......?
And is the air intake boot COMPLETELY installed......it won't run proper without the air boot pulling through the MAF.
Random black wire come from wiring near coil? if so then yes it get's grounded to the engine.

I have done everything that I can think of. Im about ready to sell it and take a major loss. Please more replies I need any and all suggestions!!
Don't give up. Walk away for a few days and let your head clear. Logically, if you "did everything right" it would be running, yes? Not pointing fingers so don't get offended. When you go that far into the engine, expect something to be missed. As long as it wasn't the head bolt procedure and cam towers, it is probably easily correctable. But at this point you are just frustrated and logic won't penetrate that.

Problem is not re-using the head bolts. How dod you do the torque sequence? you didn't pop out any freeze plugs?
