Question about Cars & Trucks
Did you try holding the gas pedal down half way and try to start it, some times the computer looses its memory for idle and will not start unless the gas pedal is pushed ,then it will relearn itself after it runs a while,
the other thing would be to scan computer and see if there are any stored codes. also can you check and see if there is spark at the plugs and if the engine is getting fuel, the last thing is who installed the head and timing belt, was belt aligned correctly?

ok, its time for a radiator flush. there is major sludge in the internals of this radiator. Make sure the thermostat is in the correct position as well. I've seen many cars come into my shop with the thermostat inserted backwards.

The reason the service writers always recommend that the water pump be changed along with the timing belt and cam and crank seals, is that they are all located together, and it takes a long time (which you pay for) to take everything off to get to the area, so you may as well replace the other things which will go out soon with that high of a mileage anyway. Altogether, it runs between $500-$700, but it should last you another 100,000 miles. Your serpentine belt should cost about $130 parts and labor. If you are in doubt or the dealership has a bad reputation, have it towed somewhere else. Any time you have doubts, cal the BBB in your area and ask questions.

im guessing a pulley press, or is it the tensoner pulley, usually a rachet head will fit in there, or even a pry bar, if one of the pulleys r bad, what ever you do to get it off, then use a block of wood an a hammer to put new one on,
