I changed timing belt on 3.2 liter v6 1990 grand am. Why is it still sputtering and back firing

It sounds if the timing is out a tooth. if it run ok before the belt change that is the fault . remove the timing cover , check out timing marks by turning engine clock wise only. after fitting a new belt I all ways set tension and rotate engine twice and recheck marks , saves a lot of time if a tooth out.

cam sensor fail can be crank sensor fail engine will run with cam sensor fail but crank it will not fire. also recheck the timing belt settings you fit the timing belt and run engine till warm then recheck the belt adjustment to make sure its in line and at recommended tightness.

Check the ECM for codes. Cam or crank sensors will cause a no start. Also there should have been a compression and/or leak down test performed on the engine before the belt was replaced. This is done to make sure that the pistons didn't bend the valves. Bent valves will cause a nostart because of no compression. First check for codes then do a compression test before you replace anything. Let me know

Timeing belt broke have replaced now not fireing

You either have the belt 180 degrees off. So you have to take belt off and turn crank only (slowly) around once to its mark again, but first you need to go to a website that lists motors that are called "interference fit" engines. (Think Gates belt co. has a list) If your motor is an interference fit then when belt broke the motor is trashed. Interference fit means that pistons can hit valves if the belt breaks. That is why they tell you to replace the timing belt before too long. Also if motor is interference fit when you try and turn crank go slow because you may bump into valve.

Belt came off and wrapped around the crankshaft pully then would not start.....seems like timing had changed....won't fire....would it be a sensor behind the pully? and are they adjustable?

The sensors are not usually adjustable, it looks like the timing belt has jumped a tooth or two, fit new timing belt to orinigal marks on engine, hopefully there is no damage done to the engine you will know when you try to start the motor.
