Question about 1996 Eagle Vision
Remove the spark plugs and run a compression test. I'd guess you will have low-to-no compression. Two likely causes:
1: you did not get the crankshaft and camshaft correctly aligned when you put the new belt on. If this is the case, all cylinders will have about the same compression, but will be very low. Are you absolutely sure that you got the timings marks correct when you put the belt on?
2: the valves were damaged when the belt broke, open valves and pistons coming up. Talk to the parts department of you local Chrysler dealer, and ask if this engine has "negative valve clearance". If that's the case, you will need to pull the head and have the valves repaired. In this case, a few cylinders may have good compression and a few others may have low-to-no compression.
Of course it it also possible that you failed to connect something when you put it back together, and you are not getting spark or gas. Test for that first.
