Thanks for choosing Just Answer . I'm Wolfgang here to help!!
Below is my first answer or request for more information. If you do not understand it, or you need more information from me, or need me to go in more detail. Do not rate yet, just reply. Put yourself in my shoes, I can not see, smell, hear, feel or touch your car, nor do I know any history on it. So take into consideration I am doing my best based on what you tell me. Also understand fixing cars often requires sophisticated tools, that you may not own. So even if you can not do what is outlined in my answer, that does not mean my answer is wrong deserving to be rated negative.

i do need more information please

  1. why was the sensor and coils replaced?
  2. was there codes stored before the repairs?
  3. any recent accidents?

Expert:  Wolfgang replied 1 year ago.

lets makes sure of this if you turn the ignition on does the check engine light come on in the cluster?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Expert:  Wolfgang replied 1 year ago.

that is good thing . now if you have the air cleaner off.. at the intake manifold there is a sensor held by one bolt remove and shoot carb cleaner in the hole for 5 seconds . place the sensor back in the manifold and crank the car to see if it will at least kick over ,
