Another successful transplant! It Lives!

Did you do the Timing Belt/Water Pump while the engine was out? What about the Oil Pan? Get that fixed?

Yes the timing belt, water pump, and rear timing seals were all done with the engine out.

Guess what...BOTH OIL PANS are screwed. We used the better pan as it seemed to have a sturdier plug in it.
However....it does drip. I will make one last attempt to fix the drain plug and if that fails ill get another pan.

Looks great! Congrats on getting the rebuild done and running!

As for the oil pan, all the work you've done, get a new one. They are a pain in the ass to try to fix, just because of the way the threads are cast etc. It makes them hard to drill out and helicoil, or repair the threads. Just easier to get a new pan by the time you are done. Or, as I've done in the past; and one of the few "quick fixes" I like; get a speedy plug. They work very well; I always asked the owner of the vehicle, but once installed, no more issues, and money saved!

Well been driving her to and from work for the past 3 days now.

Man its running great, accelerates great, shifts great, no MIL or codes.

I do have an oil leak right now tho in 2 places. 1 is from the oil pan drain like i stated previously. I am going to replace it. The other is more towards the rear/passenger side. It looks like it drips on the exhaust on that side because i can smell it when the car starts up.
I am running the cheapest cheapest 10W-30 oil right now because i have the intention of only going to 500 miles before changing it with the filter to good high quality 10w-30. I need to address the 2 oil leaks first tho

Make sure you didnít spill any oil when filling it. On the 3.2/3.5, if you spill the slightest bit of oil when filling, it ends up on the head and exhaust and doesnít quickly burn off - it stays and gives off a burning smell for several days. Just mentioning that in case that is what happened. You could try spraying down around the fill hole and below it with brake parts cleaner with the engine cold to see if the smell stops.

Itís worth using a funnel to fill or add oil to prevent the smell. It only takes a drop or two.

Update...got her up to 120mph today!! It had no issues doing so and felt great.
It really shifts great. Crisp quick and zero sloppyness...for having over 200k on her that seems great!

I'm still concerned with that oil leak in the rear...seems to be dripping off the structural colla/sway bar area.
I'm hoping...HOPING...its just my oil pan and not the rear seal. The rear main seal was the one seal i did Not touch in any way. It looked perfect and really this engines front crank and cam seals looked perfect as well but they all got changed.

Fingers crossed

Did you replace the rear cam cap o-rings and put RTV on the lower driver’s side cap bolt threads? Although if they are leaking, I don’t think it would be more than a slow seepage.

Those o rings have been replaced. I did double check a few nights ago and reached back to see if i felt oil. They both felt dry i think.

I will look again today. Its a balmy 10 degrees outside here in Omaha. LOL

You swapped oil pans right? Did you use a new oil pan gasket? Chrysler gasket? What about sealer/RTV? FSM describes where the sealant needs to go.

Looks like you have multiple leaks.

No we ended up not swapping oil pans because both drain plugs had aftermarket thread tap plugs on them.
And at the time, we were in mid engine swap (time constraints) and just threaded the bigger plug into the pan on the replacement engine. It took the bolt well and cut new threads and looked like it sealed. (Now...we know it doesnt seal lol)

And yes we applied RTV on the 4 areas per the FSM instructions.
No it was a felpro gasket.

Ill more than likely be buying a new pan anyway.
