Car wont start due to timeing is out. everything around the engine is stil in good conditions nothing snapped or broken, valves under the rocket cover is still good, cambelt came off. i dont know how to put the cambelt on without causing another problem im working on the car now but need info plz anyone
You need to rotate the cam until timing marks on the sprocket are in line with the head, then make sure crank shaft timing mark is lined up. Install the belt. Might have to loosen the timing belt tensioner. Put timing belt tensioner back on, rotate the crank shaft with a wrench first to make sure there's no interference. Next, check compression.

The only matter there should be in the throttle body is air. The throttle body in no way has anything other than "nothing" in it. The liquid you see could be the gasoline you threw into the throttle body.
Getting back to your problem. Do NOT have someone looking down the throttle body while you are trying to start the engine. That person may receive a haircut he will never forget! Get the battery charged. Try to start the engine because even though you think you put too much gas in the throttle body, it may start.
The tricky part. If the engine starts and runs for a few seconds, then you are having a problem with fuel delivery and that is the fuel pump most of the time but not always.. If it does not start at all, try one more time to pour gasoline into the throttle body, hold your foot about 1/2 way down on the pedal and then try again to start it. If it still doesn't start, it's time to check for spark.
Take the distributor cap off, crank the engine, see if the rotor turns.
Put it back together.
Remove the center ignition wire from the distributor cap, put the end of the wire within a quarter inch from metal ground, crank the engine, look for a spark.
The engine needs compassion, fuel, and spark to run. Check one thing at a time
well try removing the distributor and spin it around half way 180 degrees then try. it seems you are off there are two ways to install the distributor because two turns for the crank equal one for the distributor.if still wont start call on me again i will help you .
With the engine off,open the hood and check in and around throttle cable for a build up of sludge,dirt,trash. If none is found and everything looks good there,then look inside the throttle body itself. If you see and dirt,sludge build up around the throttle plate then use a carburator cleaner and spray on and inside the throttle plate with plate open. Spray around the throttle shaft inside and out to remove anything causing a binding condition. Work the throttle pedal from inside to check and see if it is freeing up. If so then let the parts dry before you try to start the van. Also make sure there is nothing left under the hood that would get caught in the engine when you start it. You may need to try this twice to completely remove any sludge you missed the first time. If so let the engine cool down before trying this again. Hope this will help you.
looking in the spark plug holes is not the way to do it.you wont see nothing from that first off if theres no plugs the engine will get its intake stroke air from the plug hole so you wont see any fuel
if you want a quick check to see if its a fuel problem have your brother crank it while you shoot a little starting fluid down the throttle body
if it starts or trys to start then fuel is were to look
i dought the injecters went bad.out of gas? think about it it ran before you took it apart now it does not so i would recheck all the wires to the sensors make sure you reconnected all the ground wires. check every fuse in the fuse box or boxes.hold the throttle open a little bit the battery was unplugged so the computer has been reset.
Clean the Idle air control valve (IAC), it's located by the throttle body so the best thing to do is give the throttle body a good cleaning with throttle body cleaner. Do not use carb cleaner, it's to corrosive for the gaskets used on the throttlebody's. Just follow the instruction on the spray can and after your done putting everything back together. Turn the ignition key's to the run position for 10 seconds and then off for 10 seconds to reset the IAC. Start the engine and let idle for 1 min and go for a test drive. If that does not work, turn the ignition to the run position and pull the ecm(BATT) fuse out for 30 seconds and then place it back in start te engine. The engine may stall but let it, don't touch anything. Just start it again and let idle for 1 min then go for a test drive. The ECM is just relearning the sensors like the first time the jimmy was driven off the assembly line. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted be glad to get your jimmy running 100%.
