i think one of your sensor is messed up, also do a compression test on each cylinder if you have the tools. check inside the each spark hole too. possible a crank position sensor, map sensor...more....get a scan tool.

ill bet you put that crank position sensor sprocket on backwards.. I did this the first time i put my motor together. did the same thing.

You will have to take the timing cover off to see. It will say outside on one side of it.
