Cranks, but will not start.
Do you have a tach on the dash? If so crank it over and see if rpm climb, if not you may have a crank sensor out, if you have a test light you can check for injector pulse, sometimes a crank sensor will let you have spark but no injector pulse, there is also a fuse for injectors, you have 2 wires to the injector, connect the test light to the wires and turn it over and see if it blinks.

How long have you driven on the nylon timing belt in the engine ?
What is the recommended distance before the timing belt needs replacement is it 100,000 kilometers ?

Is there an adequate amount of oil in the engine ?
If the timing belt bearings are worn the timing belt gets hot and could cause that burning smell you mentioned .
Note if the timing belt breaks while the engine is running it could result in engine damage.
