2015 JK 4door unlimited 117,000kms

Wife started Jeep in the morning started shaking and spewing black smoke everywhere. Towed to dealership. There for a week before they told me that it needs new engine and they "suspect" that engine was staved for oil causing the problem. Wanted $6000 for used (78000km) and $8500 for new. Got another story from service manager the next day saying that he wasn't sure what happened and said it may be the timing chain. Had towed to a Master Mechanic. They said first theory was correct and replaced motor with used (39000km) for $6400. Picked dit up yesterday. Ran funny ...now it won't start. Being towed back tonight. Anyone have any idea???? Any other cases like this out there?

That is pretty vague to diagnose... but with a complete engine swap it could be just about anything... What do you mean by 'ran funny'? Like it ran rough? Did they use your old wiring harnesses? How much of the 'new' motor did you get? Did they include the exhaust manifolds?

Does it turn over now? Like it spins but isn't firing?

Need a bit more info but hopefully your installer warranties their labour.
