[QUOTE=crazy larry]

did a head job on a taurus, got it all buttoned up, realized i'd failed to reinstall the fuel injection harness... had to take it back down to the lower intake manifold....


i kind of had a same situation on my daughters 97 dodge neon a few years ago..timing belt went out & those are the "interference" engines..in other words when the timing belts goes the valves slaps off the top of the pistons..soo..have to have the valves replaced & the head shaved..so i got it all done..put it ALLLLLLL back together..kept noticing an oil puddle under the car after starting it & letting it run a bit to check things out..looked to see where it was..i had pinched a peice of the igition harness in the back of the head & it was stuck in there..talk about throwing a temper tantrum.& those little things aint easy at all to work on..have to practicly pull the engine out to do it all right.....
