94 ford ranger 2.3l missing and lacks power compression test good

Assuming the cam timing is right, and you have spark on all plugs, the next thing to check would be fuel pressure and injector pulse.
Is the check engine light on, and was it running bad before the timing belt was replaced ?

Battery good starter good but will not start

The two usual reasons a car won't start are either lack of fuel or lack of spark (ignition). Pull a spark plug (pull off the plug wire boot, then get a spark plug socket and a ratchet handle and unscrew the spark plug). Reconnect the plug wire to the spark plug and hold the metal base of the spark plug against the metal valve cover or the engine block (something grounded) while someone else cranks the engine over with the ignition switch for a few seconds. If you don't see a spark jump the gap in the plug, you have an ignition problem. If you do have a spark, it's probably either lack of fuel to the cylinders or a timing problem that is causing the problem.

How to set the timing on a 1982 olds 98

Hi: 1st thing to do is pull #1 Spark Plug AND before you Crank The Engine PULL COIL WIRE so your car does'nt Start During Your ommpression Test.Once you have commpression coming out #1 Spark Hole.Then follow the #1 Spark Plug Wire up to the Distributor Cap-Now Mark that #1 Wire with a Marker ,Sting any Way you'll know where it is on your Distributor.Now PULL Distributor Cap and see where the Rotor Is,It should be Pointing toward that #1 Spark Plug Wire. Could be a Little Past.. If all This Lines up and Tested Out right,Then ALL you Need to Do is Clean and Mark Your Timing to What you Car is in Time, Could be TDC (TOP DEAD CENTER) or 4-8 Degrees BTDC (Before Top Dead Center.And then put coil wire in and attach your timing light to #1 Wire And Loosen the Distributor Hold Down Bracket Under Distributor.Where You Still have a Little Resistance to Move it Clock or Counter Clock Wise. Start the vehice and Slowly Move the Whole Disributor Until You Get The Timing Light At the Timing Mark you Made. Thats It. Hope this Helps You Out. From The WYOCWBOY

Try changing the fuel filter. If it clogs up the engine won't get the fuel it needs to run at wide throttle openings, the engine will ****** the timing, and you'll lose power. With less throttle the filter can flow well enough for the engine to run properly.

No start

Turn the engine by hand to Top dead center on the # 1 cylinder,Pull the distributor cap and see where the rotor is pointing.It should be lined up with the # 1 plug wire on the cap,If it's not,turn the distributor until it is.If you can't turn it far enough,you will need to pull the distributor out and turn one tooth on the distributor gear and reinsert it.

If this it is way off,let me know and I will tell you what to do.
