I done a recon on my toyota corolla 1300 2e engine... and now it refuses to start...
The engine does turn over and the timing marks are all on point... when i start it the engine wants to take but when it gets to that point to take it likes skips it and turns again from when i first start it....

If you removed the tensioner and didn't lock the cams and crank down then you have to re-time the engine. It sounds like you let the exhaust and intake cams move.
Remove the spark plugs, put a ratchet on the crank pulley, slowly rotate engine until the cams line up. Once the cams are lined up remove, the timing belt and bring the crank around to the timing mark. put belt back on and let the tensioner go. put plugs back in...see if it'll start.
this is an indication of worn bearings and worn rings as there is too much oil on the cylinder walls from excessive loss from the worn bearings that the worn oil rings cannot control the excess at high engine rpm's. Consider a recon short motor as it will be expensive to rebuild the engine.
If you mean how to install timing belt, I'm not sure on your corrolla, but on my old tercel I turned the crank pulley so that cylinder 1 was at its top height (by feeling with a screwdriver in sparkplug hole) then turned valve pulley until first valve was open (with valve cover off) then aligned the timing belt that way. It didn't work. Then I realized that the cylinder has 2 top positions, one for "compress" stroke and one for "push out exhaust", so I turned crank again to bring cylinder one to top height, aligned belt, and it worked, car started.
Then I realized that crankshaft pulley had a ''timing mark'' (a kind of little notch) on it and that it aligned perfectly with a mark on engine, just to prove that I had done it right, "by hand".
