Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

The one thing that comes to mind that all these components have in common is the grounds. Since you did not have these problem before you replaced the engine I would suggest you go back and check all your grounds. I have enclosed a list below for there locations. Copy and paste the link to your browser to open and view them . Check theses and let me know the results and we can work from there if need be.
