Forget the MAF sensor. As I said above IT WILL NOT PREVENT THE CAR FROM STARTING.

No, there isn't a fuel pressure sensor.

You don't have spark. That'* your problem. Find a local mechanic that can scan your car. Your car is very difficult to find a scanner for unless you want to buy the Actron CP9145. Autozone MIGHT let you borrow it in the parking lot if they have one opened for store use.

If I can get a scanner and test it, what exactly am I looking for and what codes do you need. Do you have maybe any idea on what it might even be? We've gone over this car with everything that we can think of. Not much else to replace on it is there?

Also one other thing that we noticed, before we replaced the computer, the oil pressure gage was always buried at 120 on the gage. Last night after changing the computer the oil pressure gage was no longer buried. When we drove it this am the oil pressure was back reading 120 on the gage, we know this is not related to not getting any spark, just curious.........Also, the service engine light was not on last night after replacing the computer, and again today it was on full time when we drove it....

Well for sure you have not found the problem yet as the ses light came on even with a new pcm.
You need that code to go further.

Which code am I looking for? You mean take it and have it scanned? Do autozone or oreilly do any of those scannings? If I can buy a scanner are they costly to buy?

You scan for a DTC, diagnostic trouble code.
you need the one willwren mentioned above. actron cp9145
heres one on ebay
http://cgi.ebay.ca/ACTRON-OBDII-SUPE...QQcmdZViewItem

We dont have autozones up in Canada so I dont know if they would have one.
But if theres one near you give them a call and ask.

Oh thats your oil sending unit, odd that it came back for a spell with the pcm swap, more of a coincidence I would think.
But thats not causing your no start problem. That stored code in the ses light has more of a clue than our guesses.
