If the car is turning over fast enough then you need 3 things for it to start,fuel/pressure,air no intake blockage/and spark.check to make sure you have spark at the plugs by pulling off a plug wire and have someone turn over the motor(be careful as there is about 50-60,000 volts) if you have spark then check for fuel and fuel pressure(pressure should be about 35lbs).you can also check for fuel pump operation as there should be a noise like a humming noise that you could here at the fuel filler neck with the gas cap off or you can listen at the fuel tank with your ear or a screwdriver held against the tank with your ear against the other end of the tool while cranking.if you don`t hear the pump then its not working.check the fuses in the fuse panel to make sure its okay.common problem with these is the fuel pump.

Serpentine belt broke and was replaced. Now car will not start.

what do you mean "wont start" do you mean it turns over and wont start, or wont turn over?? belts dont just break, if the car wont turnover, take the belt off and manually spin every pulley with your hand, all should spin freely (except the large bottom crank pulley) you may find that one of them is siezed.

Car wont start

It sounds like the timing belt snaps based on the hissing sound that you described............if it cranks lightly without much load then it is confirmed the timing belt has snapped.
