Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

There are many possible causes for your condition,especially considering it seems to have happened due to replacing the engine. IT's going to require some testing to determine exactly what is wrong.

It sounds as if the PCM isn't functional, either due to internal failure or a loss of power or ground to it.

Do you have a scan tool?

Does the fuel pump run when the key is turned on?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
i have scan tool and there is no codes and the fuel pump is turning on when the key is on but we replaced the pcm because was the same problem was not sending the signal to the fuel injectors and the coils but we check the crank and cam signals and the computer is geting the signal so we put a other computer but is the same problem

You said cam and crank signals were present when cranking.

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
the cam and crank are present to the computer and ther is no circuit becouse we check all the wiring .
Nissan Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 4 months ago

If the signals are present then there is no need to be concerned with the sensors or their wiring.

Hey there, Nissan expert here.

If you are getting no RPM signal and the crank sensor connector and wiring is good, but you also have not spark or injector pulse, then it sounds like the drive plate was not lined up properly when installing the engine to the transmission.

Let me know if you need anything else.

thanks.
