Lt sounds very much like you have bent a valve stem. There is a quick way to check the probability of this, firstly get a peice of wood, about 50mm x 50mm and about 6oomm long (or 2x2 and2ft long in old money) With the engine idleing place one end of the peice of wood on the top of the cam cover, (thats where you put the oil in) and the other placed against your ear. you will be able to hear the valves rattle if they are bent, and sorry mate, if thats the case, it's an engine head rebuild or replace with either a new block or one from the wreking yard.

Replaced a timing belt and car wont start.


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.

Sounds like timing belt not on correctly. Check timing marks are aligned correctly when installing timing belt. This vehicle should have 2-3 marks to be aligned when installing belt.marks should be on cam gear/ crankshaft gear and intermediate shaft if engine is equipped with it.

Timing belt might have slipped a tooth causing the engine to misfire. Check that the crankshaft and camshaft is in the correct position and the tensioner is working properly. Ideally, if the timing belt is replaced, the tensioner and the water pump also has to be replaced. Or you might be able to just replace the spring for the tensioner. A less than $5 part.

Check the new thermostat by putting it in a pan of water and bringing it to a low boil. See that it opens. It is possible to get bad parts off the shelf.
