Question about 2001 Chrysler Sebring
2.4l DOHC. A friends timing belt broke and I replaced the belt and water pump. Lined everything up as per maint. manuel and turned it by hand 2x. Felt smooth and the marks seemed to Line up. Car wont start. Checked for spark. Good. Smell fuel so I feel that its getting gas. Wants to fire but wont. Double checked timing marks and they look good to me. Any Ideas???
Sometimes it's wise to count the teeth to make sure you're right on. Usually if the timing is a little off it'll still ignite fuel a little and pop. If it ran prior to doing the work, you may have forgotten to plug something back in, I do it quite often. If the timing belt broke, it may have bent valves. If you're smelling fuel, it's unlikely it's being ignited. I'd check compression just in case, and make sure you're not 180deg off. If you're going to remove the belt again, check the #1 piston is all the wAy up, check to make sure the distributor rotor is pointing to #1, and check to make sure cyl #1s valves are closed.
