    just swapped motor 2 weeks ago, everything went great no problems and turned key and it fired right up and runs great

    but once in a while, when i turn the key....nothing, all dash lights are on and everything, its got a new alternator so im guessing that shouldn't be the problem

    could it be just the battery? starter? wire?

    thanks

    my guess is the wires to the starter are loose

    thanks for the input, believe me ill check it out, i travel alot and ive got to get all the "bugs" out before i drive to far from home.

    i guess if all else fails and it ends up being the alt. its got a 1 year warranty, but its a pain to pull it!

    fixed it! the engine ground wasn't quite tight enough. i was stranded for a while and couldnt fix it, then i tried that and it worked on the first try


    thanks for the input
