Have you changed the engine? I put a 2001 engine in a 2000 and had to change the timing belt pullies that corispond to the 2 crank angle sensors because the 2001 had 2 tabs on the pully to activate the coil and the 2000 had 4 tabs. It had the same problem you discribe.

Car wont start


If your car is injected it maybe the crankshaft position sensor or the throttle position sensor. Get then tested or replace them.

Hi have changed timing belt after it broke as per marks


you may have bent some valves in the head or the belt has not been fitted correctly
Check engine compression and correct timing on engine

Changed engine but a non start


Valve Timing sounds off to me (belt driven to valves) You are assuming the timing marks on the heads AND your engine drive pulley are OK, right? Heads could be 180deg out which is easy to fix by taking off the belt at the heads and manually rotating the pulley once and retesting.

Pull a plugwire, shove a rope of twisted tinfoil into it and see if it sparks to block. If you get fire, then my very strong guess is that the spark and Gas/Air compression cycle aren't happening at the same time and the valves are 180deg out.
