I'm getting fire to my plugs changed the coils,fuel is ok.And I took every thing apart checked timing belt,all the fuses.I hooked it up to the onboard 2 it read knock sensor.Could this make it not start or should I be looking at the cam or crank senor? P.S It got pretty hot when the belt broke.

you need three things to start a car gas /fire /and timing check the timing first then see if you are getting fire to spark plugs then pull your fuel line at motor crank motor see if gas Is present no gas replace fuel pump no fire replace coil if timing has jump replace timing belt
you said you repl dist cap that means you don't have a crank sensor you have electronic ing module. remove your elec ing module have it tested most auto parts stores could test your module, or check your coil at the neg terminal. should have power. if not you lost your primary volt from your batt.your secondary power is coming from your electronic ing module from the module to the pos terminal on the coil, when the eng cranks,from the coil to the dist cap , from the dist cap center to the rotor then out to the plugs,this all happen pervided the timing belt or timing chain is ok. the cumbustion chainber needs 3 things , thats fuel, air, and spark.
Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. It is possible that the crank sensor is the culprit. It could also be other things as well. If your vehicle is out of time, it is possible that the computer won't read it. It may be a cam sensor, distributor, coil, dist.cap, rotor, coil pack, or even the computer. Your best bet is to try and get a code or two by scanning the computer. If you can't get a code, test there parts with a voltage meter and see which ones get power and which one doesn't. If the car is out of time, it won't start. Make sure the belts didn't knock or tear other parts or wires. If you have any questions, just let me know. Thanks for using FixYa.
THE WIRES THAT GOT DAMAGED IS THE VRS OR VARIABLE RELUCTANCE SENSOR SIGNAL PROVIDES ENGINE POSITION AND RPM INFORMATION TO THE IGNITION MODULE AND CRANKSHAFT SENSOR WHICH FIRE PLUGS.THE BROKE WIRES COULD BE YOUR PROBLEM.
Lots of reasoons for a no start this answer is as if it was running OK just the other day and was starting OK. The gas tank has gas? Spinning real freely indicates to me that the timing belt broke. The oil cap off the valve cover look in there to see the cam and crank engine you should see it turn. The fuel pump may not be coming on. The fuel filter could be frozen not letting the gas go though. The spark may not be happening as A senser or also a plug wire or other wire off inspection of these things something off can be the only problem
