SOURCE: engine cranks car won't start
Sorry..... 1 notch off is just not good enough. It has to be exact , then if it doesn't run start looking at other posibilities.
Remember that the camshaft turns twice eash time the crank turns once. The distributor rotor works off a gear on the cam.
Your rotor could be off a bit , or it could look exactly perfect the way it was when tou took it out , and still be 180 degrees off.
You have to get your engine to "top dead center" and make sure everything is the way it should be.
A timing chain ( or belt ) can cause permanent and fatal damage to the valve train and pistons in motors that are "interference engines" Find out weather yours is. In a non-interference engine , the clearance between the valves and the pistons is large enough to alow them to move out of time without crashing into each other. An interference engine is not so forgiving.
The fact that your engine cranks makes me hopefull that it is a non interference engine , and that damage has not been done.
Try to find a haynes manual for you vehicle , it will walk you through the steps for most repairs.

Check the backlash of the starter it may require a shimm if it has a high pitch wind when starting....make sure the flywheel isnt damnage or missing teeth...

i'm sure it's not the starter itself that is the problem, have the stater's solenoid checked...it might be stucked. It's quite a lot of work removing the starter but you can do it if you are willing enough to learn. You just need the right idea and tools to do it. Hope this will help save you bucks!

Hello I have simular problem the ignition on is stuck in that position with the key turned off and out of the ignition switch.It feels like the key switch is spinning freely in the ignition. Do I need an ignition switch?

broken teeth on flywheel or starter pinion. take starter out and bench test it. if starter seems good and no teeth are missing/worn, inspect flywheel through starter whole
