The timing belt operates the valves on the car. If it was installed without aligning the belt pulley to the timing marks, then the valves will be open during compression. With no compression the car will not start. Re-install the timing belt paying special attention to the timing marks on the valve pulley. This should cure the problem. If it does not, then a dealer needs to sort out the issues.
If I am not mistaken you have to change out the timing belt also when changing it cause it runs off the timing belt. So you will have to pull the front side of the motor down. Big job did one on a accura
loosen the mounting bolts on the alternator, remove the old belt, replace with the new belt, slightly tighten the top mounting bolt, pull the alternator up until the belt is tight or if there is an adjustment bolt, crank down until tight (shouldn't bow more than 1"), and tigten other hardware.
public libuary...Chilton or Haynes Manuel. Coat the new camshaft with STP or grease when installing. Are you doing both cams? Usually they wear out from not enough oil reaching them. You may consider replacing the lifters at the same time.
Get a T belt from toyota. It has 3 white lines on
it and and arrow mark. 2 lines are solid and one is broken. Put the
arrow facing away from the engine. The cam gears have a dot punched
into them near a certain tooth. This is where the solid white lines
will line up with. The crank gear will have a dot also. It will line up
at 90 degrees from the top, towards the front of the car. This is where
the broken line will match up with. With the belt installed with all
lines on their proper dots and arrow away from the engine, you valve
timming is correct. Of course you need to remove and compress the tensioner also. I assume you know this already since you didn't ask.
1.Install No. 2 idler pulley (if removed). Install and tighten bolt to
specification. See TORQUE SPECIFICATIONS . Ensure idler pulley is clean
and rotates smoothly. 2.Install No. 1 idler pulley and tension spring
(if removed). Pry No. 1 idler pulley away from timing belt area as far
as possible. Temporarily tighten No. 1 idler pulley bolt. Ensure idler
pulley is clean and rotates smoothly. 3.Using crankshaft pulley bolt,
rotate crankshaft so timing mark on crankshaft sprocket aligns with
timing mark on oil pump housing. See. This will position keyway in
crankshaft sprocket at 12 o'clock position.
CAUTION:If reusing timing belt, ensure reference marks on timing belt
align with reference marks placed on crankshaft and camshaft sprockets.
Ensure timing belt is installed in original direction of rotation.
4.Ensure all sprockets and idler pulleys are clean. Install timing
belt on crankshaft sprocket, oil pump sprocket, No. 1 idler pulley, and
then No. 2 idler pulley in sequence. 5.Install timing belt guide with
cupped side away from crankshaft sprocket and flat side toward timing
belt. Install No. 1 timing belt cover and new gasket. 6.Align
crankshaft pulley key groove with key in crankshaft. Install crankshaft
pulley. Install and tighten crankshaft pulley bolt to specification.
7.Rotate crankshaft clockwise so cylinder No. 1 is at TDC on
compression stroke. Ensure timing mark on crankshaft pulley aligns with
"0" mark on No. 1 timing belt cover. If reusing timing belt, ensure
reference mark on timing belt aligns with upper edge of No. 1 timing
belt cover. 8.Rotate camshaft, and align hole in camshaft sprocket with
alignment mark on camshaft bearing cap. See Fig. 2 . Install timing
belt on camshaft sprocket. If reusing timing belt, ensure reference
mark on timing belt aligns with the reference mark on camshaft
sprocket. Ensure tension exists on timing belt between the crankshaft
and camshaft sprockets.
CAUTION:DO NOT rotate crankshaft counterclockwise, as viewed from timing belt end of engine.
9.Loosen No. 1 idler pulley bolt 1/2 turn. Rotate crankshaft pulley 2
full revolutions clockwise from TDC to TDC. 10.Ensure timing mark on
crankshaft pulley aligns with "0" mark on No. 1 timing belt cover, and
hole in camshaft sprocket aligns with alignment mark on camshaft
bearing cap. See Fig. 2 . If timing marks are not aligned, remove
timing belt and reinstall. 11.Rotate crankshaft clockwise 1 and 7/8
revolutions and align crankshaft pulley "0" mark with 45-degree Before
Top Dead Center (BTDC) mark on No. 1 timing belt cover. See Fig. 5 .
12.Tighten No. 1 idler pulley bolt to specification. See TORQUE
SPECIFICATIONS . Install No. 2 timing belt cover and gaskets. Install
and tighten spark plugs to specification. 13.To install remaining
components, reverse removal procedure. Install all bolts/nuts on right
(timing belt side) engine mount before tightening to specification.
14.On Camry, when installing control rod and bracket on strut tower and
right (timing belt side engine mount, tighten bolts to specification in
sequence. See Fig. 6 . On MR2, tighten engine
