MY IDLER TENSIONER PULLEY WENT OUT ON MY 97 ON THE TIMING BELT AND WHEN I CHANGED THE PULLEY NOW THE CAR WON'T CRANK. I CHECKED AND THE CAR IS GETTING GAS AND THE SPARK PLUGS ARE FIRING, BUT IT WON'T TURN OVER. IT DOESN'T MAKE ANY WIERD NOISES

1997 Ford Escort • 200,000 miles

I replaced my idler tensioner pulley went out so when we changed the pulley the car won't crank now. The only thing we did is take the timing belt off to change the pulley then replaced the pulley and put the timing belt back on. The car will not turn over but it isn't making a wierd noise, it just will not turn over.

I assume you mean it wont crank?
Did you line all the marks up on the timing belt?
Did you re check all the connections you touched?
