Question about Ford ZX2
Check for spark, if no spark check your crank position sensor, cam position sensor, plug wires, ignition coil, plugs properly gapped.
If you have good spark, check your fuel pressure, if good check your coolant temperature sensor.
Double check that you CORRECTLY aligned the marks on the timing belt, double overhead cam engines are more involved and require a specific procedure.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Remove the timing belt covers.
Rotate the crankshaft and align the timing marks located on the camshaft pulleys and the seal plate.
Remove the crankshaft pulley and hub.
If the timing belt is to be reused, mark an arrow on the belt to indicate its rotational direction to enable correct re-installation.
Loosen the timing belt tensioner lockbolt and remove the timing belt.
Temporarily secure the timing belt tensioner in the far left position with the spring fully extended, then tighten the lockbolt.
Make sure the timing marks on the timing belt pulley (crankshaft sprocket) and the engine block (oil pump housing) are aligned.
Make sure the timing marks on the camshaft pulleys and the seal plate are aligned.
Install the timing belt.
Loosen the tensioner lockbolt. Using a suitable prying tool, position the timing belt tensioner so the timing belt is taut, then tighten the tensioner lockbolt.
Turn the crankshaft two turns clockwise and align the timing belt pulley mark with the mark on the engine block.

Fig. 2: Make sure that the crankshaft sprocket (timing belt pulley) and oil pump timing marks are aligned — 1.8L engines
Fig. 3: Align the timing belt pulley mark with the tension set mark, at approximately the 10 o'clock position — 1.8L engines
Fig. 4: Check the timing belt deflection at the location shown — 1.8L engines
