Did you align the second lower cam that drives the oil pump and sitributer?  There is a dot on the cam that needs to align with the notch on the main pully of the crankshaft.   An easy quick test is to rotate the engine to TDC and take the distributer cap off.  It should be pointing in roughly the 2 o'clock position for cylinder 1

Spark without fire 1992 celica


Not sure I am following your story, but you need compression, spark at the right time, and fuel for the engine to start.
If you know for a fact the plugs are firing, and you have compression, you may not have fuel at the injectors.

95 fordc tauras gl 3.8 engine cranks but wont start has fuel pressure does cap and rotor have anything to do with it or timing belt gone .


cap and rotor affect spark so YES... this could be your concern

you need three things to start your car... Fuel, Spark and Compression PLUS they have to be in time

However, the two options you have are very differnt

No spark will not be similar to a broken timing belt

With no spark or no fuel the engine will sound "normal" when cranking

A broken timing belt would present it self as a FAST crank no start concern

Are you sure you have correct timing? its definetly a fule problem, if timing is good then turn your key to the on position and try to listin for the fule pump to prime. While the key is in on position go to fuel rail, there is a valve on fule rail called sharader valve. Get a small screw driver and press valve in to check if car has fule pressure. if pressure is present then it is incorrect timing or possible bad cam sensor.

I have fire and fule I just replaced the spark plugs and redid the timeing and it still wont start what ellse can I do?


are the injectors opening? fuel pressure doesn't mean the injectors are delivering any fuel to the cylinders, does the system have any trouble codes? if u are not sure if the injectors are getting a signal buy a NOID tester from NAPA or a tool dealer like Snap-On, it is very easy to use, plug it onto the fuel injector connector and crank the engine, if the injectors are getting a signal the light will flash, it is kinda hard to see so do it in the evening, if the injectors are not working then check to see if the computer has power, if the computer checks ok then u may have an issue with the engine wiring harness, very common on this car. also make sure the timing belt is ok.

How do i set the timing after replacing the cambelt.


Put the engine at TDC compression stroke , Thats when the valves are both closed on No 1 cyl and the piston is on its compression stroke .then align all cam and crank marks. set dizzy on No 1 cylinder (rotor pointing at #1 plug wire) . rotate engine 2 revolutions and recheck all marks. Fire away

3.5 will not start just back fires serverly


Get new belt installed & all aligned as it should be & do compression test before going any further to make sure. If good compression there in all cylinders, you probably dodged ( no pun intended) a bullet. Not 100% sure whether that is an interference engine or not, but will see if I can find out. By the sounds of the backfiring description, I'd be tempted to say you still have good compression. here's to hoping. Make sure when you get it back running that you keep a close eye on oil & coolant levels for a while just in case the backfiring cause some gaskets or seals to blow. Watch for difference between cylinders when doing compression test.

Cranks but wont start


Engine Cranks But Will Not Start

For an engine to run, you need three things to happen inside the engine. Compression, fuel and ignition, without any one of these components the engine will not run.
Basic Checks:

A. Test Fuses. Test both under hood power distribution center and the fuse panel under dash. This is done with a test light tool. The test light should illuminate on both sides of the fuse, if not the fuse has failed and needs to be replaced.
B. Testing Fuel Pressure Test for proper fuel pressure with a test gauge on the fuel rail, most throttle body injection cars (TBI) are between 13 psi and 17 psi. and most (DPI) direct port inject systems are between 40 psi and 55 psi. If no or little fuel pressure is observed and there is 12 volt power present the fuel pump, the fuel pump needs replacing.
C. Checking Timing Belt Test for compression by removing a spark plug and insert a compression gauge. Crank the engine over about 5 seconds the gauge should read between 125 psi and 165 psi, if no compression is observed remove front engine cover to inspect timing belt or chain. Crank engine to observe cam rotation, if the cam does not rotate the timing belt or chain has failed. (note: if the timing belt drives the water pump it is best to replace the water pump at this time)
D. Test for Injector Pulse Remove injector connector to insert injector test light (node) or volt meter. Observe light flash or gauge pulse while cranking. If light/voltmeter doesn't respond, an ignition distributor/crank angle sensor (CKS) or an ignition module is most likely your problem.
E. Test for Ignition Spark Remove spark plug wire, insert an extra spark plug into end of wire, rest spark plug next to a ground source then crank engine. You should observe a blue spark between the spark plug gap and ground source. If no spark is observed, an ignition coil, ignition rotor or spark plug wires might have failed. (always keep hands away from engine when cranking)
