SOURCE: v6 fto changed timing belt lined all marks but now back firing

Sounds like the dist. could be half a tooth off. You need to bring up #1 piston to top dead center and verify the rotor in the cap is pointing to #1 in the firing order.

I have 1989 Toyota 3.0 v6 4x4 pickup it has spark and getting fuel but wont start.

Your firing order is out of sync......if your getting spark you are firing in the wrong cylinders to actually start the vehicle. Or your ignition module or stator is bad, you will need to prob your electrical to figure out the where the problem first would be not firing cylinders correc

2000 2.5 wont start, new belt , cps, cts, coil pac, wet plugs, backfires, what to do

backfiring is ignition when an inlet valve is open. from what you have done I suggest checking the firing order as there may be a crossed HT lead or a coil pack on the wrong plug.

I put a new timing belt on the car and followed all the instruction and the car wont start. I was wondering if maybe the pistons on the car have to be in a certain order for it to fire

You can't change the 'order of the pistons' but you can change the firing order if ignition wiring is swapped and this will definitely cause problems such as not starting. The firing order is 1-2-4-3 so you need to trace the ignition wiring to ensure it is correct.

When I change timing belts, I always rotate the engine by hand and check the timing marks several times before trying to start it; this can prevent collisions between valves and pistons which is possible in some engines (interference) and very damaging, even nearly fatal and is fairly easy to be 1-2 teeth off on the first try. This generally won't damage the engine but will make it behave very strangely or it may not start at all.
If you are certain of your belt installation, you need to check for spark by removing one plug wire or the wire from the ignition coil and placing it and inch or so away from any grounded metallic part to see if you have spark. It should be a pretty fat blue spark if the ignition system is healthy although it will always appear weak in sunlight.
If you have spark, then you need to check fuel availability. The fuel rail in most injected cars should have a fitting that resembles the valve on your tires but is a different size. Turning the key to the start position briefly will pressurize the system and pushing the center pin is very briefly should cause fuel to spurt from it; keep your eyes protected when doing this.
