Backfiring into the valves

if you just had the timing belt changed then I suspect that the belt was not installed properly and is probably out at least one tooth. Possibly the cam chain tensioner is the culprit.

Changed the timing belt which broke while driving . got the timing marks off line . car hardly idles and runs rough . plugs have been changed and gapped properly .compression is 170-175 in all four...

Oh No!

Firstly, I suspect your engine may be what is called an Interference Engine - this means if the cambelt breaks, it usually causes internal damage.

If you can you please advise your engine model code, I can confirm if this is the case?

After changing the idler bearing on my subaru legacy 91 wagon compression is low in the nr 1 and 2 cylinder the car wont start, timing was jumped as the bearing failed but appears to be correct as repaired

I assume that you mean the cambelt idler bearing.Ok if you are sure that the timing is correct for all cams(DOHC)?.Then the problem may be bent valves caused by the bearing collapse allowing the cams to go out of timing and cause valve strike.
I would recheck the timing,ensuring all marks line up precisely,the only one that should look 1/2 a tooth out is the crank.Genuine belts are always preferred for these as they have all the markings on the belt to align all the cams and crank,some other suppliers do not have this
I hope that this helps you,or get back to me with your findings.

I have a dual over head cam 97 neon.It is not firing, i changed the crank sensor,the coil,and still no fire. the relay was fire. The last time it run yesterday, it run horrible. Backfiring,...

remove your valve cover and have someone try to crank it over while you watch the camshaft to see if it turns, your timing belt may have jumped a tooth ( causes bad running and back fire ) and then broke

You must reset the timing cause you can not reset just one tooth on it and yes you have to lock itin place cause the tentioner can nock it out of place when you increase the preasure

Overheats, and wont switch gears at times.

Well overheating and not starting are possibly 2 different issues. Oil is not the cause of overheating. Thermostat, water pump, electric fans and viscous fan are causes for overheating plus the sensors that control the fans. Not starting could be caused by the overheating but most likely its a fuel or ignition issue.

Camshaft sensor

Do you know if the engine timing is correct? If you get the timing a tooth out you very similar issues, has the cambelt been replaced recently - or is it over due??
Another posibility is the cam chain adjuster. This is oil pressure fed and I think controled by a solnoid, it applies a force between the chain that drives the inlet camshaft from the cambelt driven exhaust camshaft. (Making any sense? Let me know if you want me to simplify) This operating correctly advances and retards the valve timing, when faulty it can make it incorrect. Non start is a fault caused, but more often they become very noisey.
The cam chain adjuster is fed oil when the car is started, you can breifly here it before it has reached operating pressure on normal start up, sounds like a diesel knock for a second, then goes, this is normal. If it continues, its more than likely faulty.
Let me know if you want any more info. If the sensor and wiring is good you'll probably have a timing issue.

Can any body help put cambelt back together

You need to rotate the cam until timing marks on the sprocket are in line with the head, then make sure crank shaft timing mark is lined up. Install the belt. Might have to loosen the timing belt tensioner. Put timing belt tensioner back on, rotate the crank shaft with a wrench first to make sure there's no interference. Next, check compression.
