The ignition timing is preset, and being electronic doesent change unless the fly wheel has come loose. The camshaft timing is driven by a chain, the chain would need to be extremely worn and loose to jump some sprocket teeth,
unfortunatly this doesnt answer your question, but its probably not the timing.

there may be a fault in the ignition switch, water in the kill switch, the carb may need cleaning or has flooded the spark plug.
check the oil level and clean the airfilter as well

Rebuilt head, timing belt set (and set again) still no compression

I thinking that you refitted the head before setting the crank in the correct position and turned the crank with the camshaft in position or turned the cam to get the marks lined up.. If you have done any of these then you have bent the valves again and will have to start from scratch again

When checking my timing chain i found my marks dont line up i think it jumped timming. one is on the top (12) and the crank is also at 12 and yes it is on tdc

Turn the crank one more revolution. The two marks will now line up since the cam gear turns a half turn For every full turn the crank makes. A timing chain will not jump half of a gear with out some sort of evidence that it has done so.

Most of your discription would indicate a bad starter,
if your talking about the engine turning over or cranking

Some people call a no start or no ignition, a not cranking
situation, which is a wrong statement.

You may have a bad fuel pump, if the motor turns
over but won't start.

My timing belt broke on my 97 mitsubishi mirage with the 1.5 4cly. and i had the belt and componets replaced and set the engine at "TDC" and she still won't crank over. I have spark to my wires,...

I have a question for you. How do you tell that there is spark at the plugs if it doesn't turn over? I'm also confused because you say the engine cranks but won't turn over... Anyway, it sounds like your timing is off. Get the #1 cylinder to TDC and make sure your cam is timed to #1. Should have a marking on it. Line them up (usually straight up and down) and then you'll be set. If your belt broke your camshaft timing is off now. To tell if your cam is timed or not you can remove the #1 spark plug and turn the engine over while you hold you thumb over the hole (2 person job). If it doesn't have compression then your cam timing is off.

My 1995 Dodge Caravan 3.3v6 has jumped time. The first time in I put new cam and crank grears and new chain. alined crank and cam @6 & 12. Did not know about the color links. Went in the 2nd time and...

Pull the spark plug from #1 cylinder. Cut a piece of
straight coat hanger wire about 8" long,(enough so it can't fall into the cyl.)insert the wire into the cylinder.
Have a helper turn the crank until the piston is at the
top of it's stroke.(using the wire to gauge the pistons position) remove dist. cap and turn the camshaft until
the roter is set to fire #1 cylinder. Now check your
timing gear marks, if they line up, your at TDC if not
bring the crank around again. You can do the piston
roter position test before you tear it down again.
this will give you an idea of where your at on the mechanical end of this. But first hook up an obdII
and see if the cam and crank sensors show codes.
Hope this helps. Good luck.

Had to replace engine. need to know how to set the timing. the cam seems to be out of time. engine will turn over but will not crank.

what makes you think the cam is out of time if that is the case you would most likely have bent some valves or worse damaged some pistons start by checking for spark and fuel pull out spark plugs make sure you havnt fouled them also too much raw fuel in exhaust can ruin cat converter and thin your oil if you been cranking it for long time with no start condition

Will not crank

Id be suprised if its the timing as it was fine when you turned vehicle off and that isnt enough to make your timing jump.Have you checked the battery is ok?If battery ok then are the main cables(battery)tight on the battery terminal.Also check that the battery cables are tightly bolted to the engine and starter motor.Make sure the starter motor solenoid wire hasnt fallen off and has twelve volts power when cranking.Does the dash light up when you turn ignition on?Could also be time to replace starter if other tests are ok.Let me know how you go and good luck.
