Question about Cars & Trucks
If the engine's ignition components were recently serviced, the distributor could be installed 180 degrees off(what Mike referred to). If the engine was not worked on, check for good compression in the sparkplug holes with no oil or engine coolant shooting out while it cranks. Also check for blown fuses.The ecu could be missing an electrical signal. I'm not sure about your climate but I'm in Ohio and if your climate is like mine, this winter weather will crack an engine block if the antifreeze ratio off too far(ie-too much water). This condition would make the head gasket not seal and/or allow coolant and/or oil into the combustion chambers where they do not belong. If your sparkplugs are excessively wet there is a problem.

Good fuel delivery as well as strong spark I will assume. Next question, is the spark happening at the right time? Understand what I'm getting at here?

All you need is a long prubar (or you can rent a tensioner wrench at the parts store) essentially a open end wrench with a 3 ft handle.
Put the tensioner wrench on the nub of the tensioner and pull back... this will release the tension on the old belt. Remove it from one of the pulleys, and then from the entire system.
Note how it is routed through the pulleys, and put the new one on the same way.
The car should have a sticker on the radiator support telling you the path of the belt.

I've had a 1990 Acclaim, a 1990 Shadow, and a 1998 Breeze, all have a head gasket leak. The Breeze was the only one to have oil leak and it was on the rear of the engine. I'd guess that's your problem.
