SHADOW... SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME

Dodge Ram

Ok I have a 1994 Dodge Shadow with a 2.5L Its has 98,000 miles on it.

So heres the story and problem.

I just recently purchased the car. And soon after my head gasket blew out. When I took the top half apart I realized I had to replace every gasket on the top and all the hoses because they were dried out majorly. So after cleaning up and replacing everything I found my vacuum hose diagram didnt show where one of the hoses on the throttle body goes to.

But anyways I dont have 1 hose hooked up (it was already broken off before I started) cant find where it goes. And the only way im hearing on how to put this car back in time is by lining a 0 up in the hole in the bell housing. Ive tried everything I can yet I cant get my car to even fire up. All she does is crank n crank.

What am I doing wrong? What are the possibilties. I badly need help on this.

Post a pic of the hose and where the hose is coming from to start with.

Ok I dont have a pic of as now but I can describe it and trry getting a pic later.

The throttle body has 3 hoses in ther front the middle one is down lower than the other 2. It is the one missing.

Compare the drawing to your system and mark off each one that is listed and you have on the car. I would expect there will be one component left over not getting it's hose.

Ill try that again tomorrow I gotta work all day today.

I was tinkering with the timing again last night and it sounds closer but I dont think I can get it anymore lined up than I did. I had the #1 piston top dead center the bell housing mark was lined up and the distributer was lined up plus I had the crank hole top dead center. She sounded like she was huffing and puffing some but she still aint firing up.

If you had the timing chain, or belt, off did you line up the marks on the cam gear with the crankshaft gear? Or you might still be off with the distributer. Are you sure the #1 piston was up on compression stroke and not up on exhaust stroke?

Im not 100% sure but after reworking some of my vacuum hoses today and spraying in some ether I did shoot a flame out the throttle body.

That would mean I had it on compression not exhaust wouldnt it?

She started firing a little but still wont run and wont always fire. Any more ideas? Because this is dryin me up

Is this what you have-as mentioned by DWhite?

Double check plug wire routing, also
