Rotate the engine? I really dont know what you are talking about. just unbolt it and bolt a new one on, the wires should be marked on the coil.

You do not have to rotate the engine to change the coil packs. just turn the van off and unplug the coil pack un bolt it and pull the spark plug wires off

My 1999 olds silhouette van just got s new engine put in it, it will turn over, but will not start. What could cause this to happen?

I am going to assume that this is a 3.4L and that all the sensors were transferred to the new engine from the old engine and that the old engine ran before replacing it an that all the connecton are good.
Now with that said, There are three thing required to make an engine run.
1-proper air/fuel ratio. proper fuel delivery and pressure.
2-proper cylinder compression.
3-proper ignition spark, integrity and timing.
Once you have figured out what is missing , then it is time to diagnose what is at fault.

Make sure you have fuel delivery and at proper pressure.
Determine if the ignition coils are firing.

I would assume that you are gonna find there is something lacking within thses to steps.

If no spark, you will need to verify the all the connections are good and connected at the ignition module (under coil packs).
Make sure all ground connections are good.

I can only assume that the compression on the engine is good from this standpoint, because you said it is a "new" engine.

Hope some of this will help.

I have a 2001 oldsmobile silhouette and I need to change the spark plugs I see the three up front but I am not sure how to get to the three in the back?

You'll have to rotate the engine forward.Remove the air cleaner duct and accelerator cable.Place transmission in neutral(Block rear wheels). Remove the two bolts and detach driver's side torque strut(front engine mounts) .remove one bolt from radiator side of the passenger side torque strut. Use a ratchering strap attach to radiator support and engine lifting eye,rotate engine forward. remove coil pack to ease access to spark plugs. Good luck!!
