    so i got my engine installed and everything connected. the entire wire harness was hooked up and fluids filled up. i went to crank it over and nothing happened except for the starter turning the engine over. so we pulled the spark plugs to test and come to find out i don't have any spark. i've gone throught the entire toyota diagrams and troubleshooting table. i haven't done anything with the fuel system. i've completely read out the entire ignition wiring harness, the plug wires, i've got new ignition coils and new spark plugs. if anyone has had this problem please lend your help.

    hard to say without being there but do you have the ground strap on back of engine connected to firewall? that will actually keep it from starting since the motor mounts are rubber

    yup the fuses are all good and i have the grounding straps are all hooked up. there are three of them that i could find. the one on the fire wall, one on the block beside the starter, and another one (the ignition ground) that hooks up to the intake manifold.

    It could be a number of things. Is the crank position sensor installed? The ECU is all plugged in propperly? It could also vbe the sender for the oil psi........................:confused:
