Re: car turns over but don't fire
Well if it doesn't fire, it doesn't always mean that the timing belt is the problem. There can also be a problem with ur distributor. Some cars the camshaft do drive the distributor, and the camshaft is being driven by the crankshaft via the timing belt. If the drive of the distributor is dependent on the camshaft, u should open the distributor cap to c if rotation is occuring in order to verify that it is the timing belt. If ther is rotation, chekc ur distributor

Belt replacement specs of all or most cars are on top of the radiator, somewhere in the vicinity or even on the inside of hood when you lift it or a pic on the frame, look for a lil pic, if you cannot see one call a junk yard in your area or the dealership and have them copy it out of the owners manual and email it to you or even a parts store hope that helps ya
Not trying to insult you but it sounds like you might have routed one or both belts wrong. I've done it lots of times thinking I would remember the routing! If no label under the hood and not in owners manual, your local parts store or an online search will get you the right belt diagram. However, routing belts wrong usually results in the belt being too short or too long, and they wont stay on.
Also, check any vacuum lines or electrical connectors that you may have disturbed while changing belts and tensioner.
if the timing belt has no teeth on it your in alota trouble, its a cog belt should have alot deep teeth. the tesioner in underneth the plastic cover for the belt and its automatic, adjusts w a spring loaded arm and is dampened hydrauicly. if you need a diagram go to autozone or gates belts company for a diagram
