    If you disconnected the battery and reset the PCM and changed those parts you have not had enough starts and miles for everything to get ready.

    Read your scanner manual pg 7&8 explain some of that.

    Check fuel pressure key on. Check spark. By not start you mean the engine turns but it doesn’t catch.

    Does it even sputter?

    Ok I realize I didn’t ask. The sensors you replaced. Were they OEM?
    Aftermarket CPS and CKPs are often bad out of the box. One big issue is the CKP not having the paper gasket. Without the gasket the sensor gets inserted too far, The result is the flywheel killing it on the first crank of the engine.
