2001 ford focus was shut off and would not start so I replaced the timing belt using the bar and pin checked spark ok, fuel to the rail have compression but still not start ??? help

If you replaced a timing belt on a ZETEC engine, and got it right,you have mechanical ability.
My shop manual shows four pages of instructions on replacing that belt.
Assuming you have it timed properly, then it should start.
Did you make sure the fuel pump inertia switch didn't trip on it? Can you hear the fuel pump whirring momentarily when you turn it to ON'?
Keep us posted and I hope you find the problem .don-ohio

check to be sure the pop was not the timing belt broke. if car poped then quit, it is a possibility! if it broke car will not start !! replace if needed. Pull the distributor cap, and turn the engine over. It you see no movement, the belt is broken.

My Ford focus is acting strange.It starts ok,idle ok, but sometimes when you press on the gas it choks.Any idea what can cose this?

Ford focus can have a timing belt about to break,have it checked,and replace it ,if it breaks,it will not start,and it will cost you.The valves in the engine will be bent if the timing belt breaks.
