    yo just had a jdm obd 0 b16a jdm swapped in my car. the problem im having is the car just got done and is in the shop and the shop tried starting the car and the car cranks but don't turn. they told me the reason y it ain't turning is becuase they need to take the tranny off and re-align it and that its the reason y its not starting. have n e one every heard of that?

    please let me know cause its the first i heard of.....

    I dunno dude, sounds kinda BS. Never heard of that. If its cranking then it should have anything to do with the tranny. Im not sure what would have to be aligned anyways. If you took the tranny out only thing to really align is the clutch unless its a auto? I would tell em you wanna watch or get some more information on what exactly the problem is.

    if it doesnt crank then it is the starter. tell them to check the solenoid and connections. if it tries to crank and wont turn over, better try and crank it by hand from the pulley and see if it is siezed. i got mine runnin, but it is stuttering in the mid range. dont know what to do. good luck man.
    peace :spin:

    Dude their fulla shit. I would talk to the supervisor or owner of the shop. It makes no sense. Realign What in the tranny? If the cams arnt spinning it fucking siezed. The only thing i can think of is that the starter isnt making contact with the flywheel. But that would be and issue with the starter. I dont see how you can realign a flywheel. I call BS Anyone?

    "Cranks but doesn't turn"? You mean it cranks and doesn't fire up?

    If that's the case you probably need to check that fuel is getting into the cylinder. If not, you need a fuel pressure reg. A swap I did for my friend recently (B16 in EF SI) had the same problem, put in a FPR and it started right up..

    now I have to figure out why it bogs down after warming up.. :lol:

    is there oil in the motor??i always put a quart or two over the full line when i first start my swaps..get that thing lubricated..also sounds like something is wrong with the wiring maybe.who did that the shop?anyways after that check dis cap/rotor,new plugs,new fuel filter and then check the timing.one more thing check all the ground connections

    did you change the timeing belt? if so id redo it.i had a similar problem with my b16a.there wasnt enough tension on the belt so it was lose and then as you cranked it by hand it got tighter.
