Hi welcome to will answer your question the best I can,

When you crank the engine over did you notice if the rev counter was moving
should show 250 rpm +/- 50 rpm .
Check this then please get back to me.

The problem is most likely your crank angle sensor that has a
bad connection , wiring issue or the sensors itself.
