If the engine cranks but won't start, the starter and alternator would not be the problem.
Was the engine running before you changed the timing belt ?
Do you have spark to the plugs and fuel to the injectors ?
Do you have normal compression on all cylinders ?

SOURCE: 1998 subaru forester runs rough when it rains.

Check the cap and rotor for internal carbon tracking or, just change them. Also, take a look at the coil when its dark and rainy and see if there is any arcing where the coil wire goes into it.

Check the timing belt first, before anything else. The noise may have been the belt slapping the belt covers.

It could only if it was disassembled and reassembled improperly. Parts of the air conditioning system would have to be removed to get to the timing belt. Hope this helps.

Forester 1998 Battery & brake light switch on


Check to see if your Alternator belt is still on.. If it's connected to your power steering it won't work and your battery will not charge. Also if you hear a whining noise in your engine replace the belt if it's there.
