Question about Cars & Trucks
Won't start just backfires
You don't state what kind of vehicle or what engine, but it is either coil, or wires, or timing. If it's a GM product, start by changing the coil.

Back firing out of the intake is because the valves/cams are not set right. When you did the timing belt . did you set the crankshaft mark at top dead center of the compression stroke. If it's at the exhaust stroke this would cause backfiring and violent shaking.

starting fluid is a thing of the past. dont use it. this car doesnt have a carb, its a throttle body/ electronic fuel injection system. you most likely have a fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator issue. test the fuel pressure, should be anywheres from 35-50 psi

Like Ron says,timing chain is possibility,usually only above 150,000 though it can happen sooner.
I'm wondering if it has a crankshaft position sensor?
