I replaced the head gaskets in my '97 GL with the vulcan motor. To the best of my knowledge I reassembled everything correctly. Now, the car starts and runs, barely. It smoothes out over about 1500 RPM. I have an AUTOTAP scan tool and software that I'm about to try to see if that tells me anything.

Please let me know you guys have any idea what could be wrong.

Thanks

not sure how to word it but, on a sentra rebuild you had to shoot air in to the motor to get the cams to the high point. the guy missed this step and ran fine until it stopped at idle and would stall. I don't think i'm wording it right but some one will charm in.

Thanks for the reply. I just checked the Haynes manual and it didn't mention anything about pressurizing the engine.
