2000 neon turns over but doesn't spark has fuel

I have a 2000 neon the timing belt broke so I got a motor for an 05 neon and figured out the hard way I can’t use that block so I pulled it back out and used the original motor and changed the head along with all new gaskets plugs wires belts both sets of cables crank sensor cam sensor oil sensor injectors etc but for some reason I don’t get any spark got great fuel pressure fuel is going to the plugs because they are getting wet and I have checked for spark with a tester and also by putting the plug against the head as well as putting a ground fro my battery to the plug I have checked the grounds as well as checking the resistance between the block and battery and from the grounds to the body my meter is reading 0 and when I check the plug for the coil the middle is good but when checking all 3 during cranking they all show to be hot does anyone have any ideas because I get no codes except p1684 and that is just saying the battery was disconnected recently

Seat Ibiza 12 plate boot issue

Hi so I’m a 31 ye old female and I have no clue about cars at all but I have a baffling problem with my seat Ibiza 2012 car.

My boot won’t open. Took it to the garage he said the lock works but the handle needs replaced. He checked the wiring and there was electric running through. So I bought a new handle and got someone to fit it but it still didn’t work. They said it must be the lock mechanism so I bought a new lock got that replaced and it still isn’t working.

It’s not a fuse as had that checked.

When you lift the handle there’s no clicking or weight behind it so at a loss at what the problem can be as have replaced the handle and lock and the electrics seem to be fine. Has anyone else had this issue before I take it back to another garage probably to have my eyeballs ripped out ????

Iv been without it for a few weeks now and it’s a nightmare trying to get a pram in and out as I have to climb through the back to unlock it

Thanks for any advice on advance

Houston we have a problem

I just signed into my dear old car throttle account after a 3 year long break because I have a issue that no one can solve😬 I have a 2006 f150 with a 5.4 in it and for the past 15k miles when It crosses the 4K rpm mark it makes the most piercing grinding sound I’ve ever heard in my life. I’ve taken it to 3 shops and only one gave me an answer and said it was the timing belt but after they replaced the whole assembly it continued to do the same thing as I left the shop. I am completely bamboozled as I’m not mechanically inclined but if anyone could help that would be very much appreciated 🤟🏻 ps. If y’all wanna see a video I have it on request
