My question is there any way to determine the quality of a motor/engine etc, without starting it up? What I am referring to is I have all parts needed.
I have all the parts needed to rebuild a 1997 Dodge Intrepid Sport with 109,112 miles on it. It has been in a accident. I was thinking of rebuilding it. I have never heard it run. And, I need to make to many repairs before I am able to turn the motor over.
Some repairs include: the whole front part of the chassis that holds the headlights and all of the cylinders that hold the brake fluid, the windshield washer fluid, the blinkers and the grill; everything including the new radiator etc. Like I said I do have all the parts needed.
My question is do you think this is a project worth attempting seeing that I have no idea as to the quality of the motor/engine! Also, is there any possible way to determine the quality of a engine/motor without hearing it run, or without driving it? Thank you for your time in this matter.
