I'm back again. Doubt anyone will remember this thread:New Member. Major problem w/ 06 MS6
Well after a nightmare of dealing with a reputable used engine wholesaler, we have a fully rebuilt short block in the car.
I desperately need some help/advice. The car idles its a touch rough... kinda a pfffft, pfffft, pffft... You can feel it more at the exhaust than you can hear it.
No CEL. Seams to be running a little rich too.
Problem is: It has almost 0 power. I mean 0 its all it can do to rev up to 3k. once it gets there is smooths out and a little power comes back. It cant even make it up the street. It doesn't miss, stumble or surge. It just has no power.
I'm guessing at this point that the timing is off. The rebuilder assured us that timing would be done...We paid a pretty penny to know that the engine would be basically be ready to drop in.
Am I barking up the wrong tree here? What else should I be looking at. I did not do the work. A buddys dad swapped in and out (good mechanic) He believes its timing related too. But admits he is not sure.
He is going to look into the timing Monday. I've read that it requires several special tools. Is there a good write up on this? Or does anyone have the "setting timing" out the manual? Would it be the same as a Fusion? OR? OR? Just trying to make it easy on him because I think he is a bit intimated.
I mentioned this has cost a pretty penny. We are tapped out at this point. We desperately need the car back on the road to trade in. We have a trade it basically done but need the car to complete it.
I would be indebted to anyone who can help us out with info, advice, anything! Are there any reputable shops/members in socal that might be willing to offer some advice or anything at all?G
