Re: car skipping and not getting gas
Sounds like the timing is out 1. check timing 2. check timing belt is fitted correctly if the timing marks top and bottom arent in then it would cause this problem 3. you may have bent valves this is usually when the belt snaps and the engine is turned over exessively to try to start it from your description i would first think number 2. above

It's the CPS (crankshaft position sensor) beginning to fail. The sensor is located behind the harmonic balancer on the lower RH side of the engine. If you look down the accessory belt from the alternator you"ll see a wiring harness leading behind the crankshaft pulley. An easy way to diagnose a faulty sensor is to warm up the engine and carefully tap on the sensor bracket while the engine is idling. A bad sensor will cut out and the engine will stall.
If you're car repair savvy: Buy a Haynes manual for your car/truck, it will lay it out for you step by step. If not: Take it to a mechanic. It involves removing quite a number of parts from the engine, and if not done properly, you WILL damage/destroy your engine.
Yes you can run a shorter belt. You will have to measure how many inches you need to get the right size belt. The routing should be pretty much the same you just skip the AC pump and route the belt as usual. The auto parts store may carry the belt of you ask for a no-ac option when making your purchase.
