stumped

just changed engine in a 2000 intrepid 2.7. now i'm done it won't start. i've checked everything a 100 times and it's all in order. two things come to mind one being the new engine is 2 years newer and the other is the fuel regulator looks different. any ideas?

the engine has about 50000km. it comes from our insurance salvage and would have been bench tested.

sorry it's 2 years newer.....I would try and remove the camshaft sensor connector, the one on the on the front (right side of the engine) and crank the vehicle it may take a long time to start if it does. I'm trying to figure out if you have the wrong engine installed....one engine may be a NGC and one may be SBEC,

today i have changed the fuej rail,injectors,coils,plugs,cam sensor, still nothing. all thats left is crank sensor and ecm. i looked under the dash and found a fried ground wire for the remote starter. someone must have hooked jumper cables up backwards.can't be good for it,maybe took some life out of ecm, what do you think ?

sorry to tell you but you have the wrong engine installed...or at least the wrong cam sprocket...there is a certain year that chrysler has change the pcm from sbec to ngc. the cam sprockets have different slots in them for different firing. If your energetic you can start to disassemble the old engine and remove the cam sprocket and install it on this engine..
