Question about Cars & Trucks
Timing belt, all fuses and relays checked ok.Good distributor, good pump- tested.
Another you have to check, the igniter(ignition coil) and high wire (ignition system). ignition coil must be ranges from 9000 ohms to 12000 ohms(secondary winding) and 0.5 ohms to 1.0 ohm (primary winding)
and check the fuel filter and the carburator(for the fuel system). the system must be free from any dirt and no trapped air.

check the crankshaft position sensor on the bottom of the crank. There is a disc with wings behind the timing belt pulley on the crank and when one of the wings breaks the magnetic field of the sensor it gives a signal to the computer. Mine broke when one of the belt teeth broke off and broke the magnet off the backside of the sensor. The little disc slides between the the two sides of the sensor and if you bumped the disc more than likely you broke the sensor (its fragile). Good luck

do you have spark? How do you know if your timing belt is good? sometimes it doesnt break just shed the teeth which could be missing under the crankshaft. The best way to check is to have two people. have one try to start the car and see if the camshaft is actually spinning. The crankshaft will always turn but if the teeth are gone on timing belt this would cause the belt to stay in one position not moving the camshaft. so if you can remove the upper timing belt cover and do this quick inspection with someone that will tell you for sure. if it does look like it is spinning then by hand turn engine very slowly with plug coil wires removed. and make sure teeth are all there. It couldve jumped timing. (valve timing)

This will take about 3-4 hours. If you look at the drive belts, they will all have to be taken off to get to the timing belt. The engine crankshaft has to be positioned for marks to line-up. The crankshaft will have to be prevented from turning so you can take off its drive pulley. Rotate until the alignment cylinder is near TDC, remove sparkplug, then packing a small rope on top of the piston prevents the engine from turning.. Once you change one timing belt, you will never buy another car with a timing belt again. You can get a manual on eBay.
