Angry Help getting my 94 Intrepid up and running again!

Found that timing belt had broke. I replaced it. Put it in new water pump, new timing belt tensioner and new fuel filter. It turns over fine. Sounds like it wants to start but won't. It has gas and gas comes throu. I am stumped and need to know where to go from here. Any help will be appreciated.

probably wasn't timed correctly when it was put back together. there's alignment marks on the cam sprockets....these are there for a reason. also check to make sure that an sensor wasn't left unplugged or something like that.

sounds like your timing points are off the mark a degree or 2. did you mark the points before you took it apart?

there's a sensor to monitor damn near everything in these cars. if one was left unplugged, it could make the engine not deliver spark, hence not turn over. my guess is that your problem lies somewhere with a sensor or sensors. make sure the spark plug wires and everything are on the right cylinders (i assume you took them off?).....try the easy stuff first before you take the front apart again.

Thank you.. Spark plug wires were not taken off when timing belt was put on. Wondering if it could be a coil...I will go and check again if everything is plugged in.. I have done this but will do this again.

it could be the coil pack i suppose....but kinda fishy that it would take a dump right then and there. PM 94IntrepidES and see if he'd be kind enough to go thru some no-start diagnostics for the 94...i can look thru on my 97 manuals but a lot changed electronically with the 3.5 (i'm assuming this is a 3.5 because you said timing belt...) and LH cars in general from 94 to 97. he's a pretty nice guy and shouldn't have any qualms about helping you.

How this happened..The car stalled and we were unable to get it started again. Towed it home. Sounded like it was out of time and that is when we put in the new timing belt. You could see the old one was shot. I know for a fact that it is in time. All 3 marks are on. I checked the wires and looks ok. I really am stumped and need help.

A crank position sensor maybe but water temp, manifold temp, throttle position, knock etc, sensor just help the computer tune itself, it would not keep it from starting.

Driley43, you obviously know what your are doing, tackling a job like this. I keep thinking timing marks but you say its on.
Just go back a recheck everything you touched. Good luck and keep us posted.

Ok if you hadn't figured it out by now it was my Mom asking the questions and Dad helping me with the mechanics.

Mom and Dad and me are all thanking you.

We tore the housing back off and found that we were out of time by 2 cogs.

We are up and running.

Will be posting a new post for parts as this problem I'm sure came from the Deer I hit and did alot of damage.

Thanks again
