Hello, why did you replace the engine? 3.8 v6? Does the check engine light come on when the key is turned to on and go out when cranking? Does the red theft lamp flash fast in the dash when the key is turned to on or does it turn on steady and turn off after a few seconds? Do you have fuel pressure at the fuel rail and spark? Any codes stored if checked with a scan tool?
