This car was working well before the timing belt broke. I have replaced the timing belts pieced everything back together and it still wont start. I made sure to align the pin holes on the camshafts with the notches they are to be aligned with.
Do you
have the same problem?

No I didn't check them. How do I go about checking them without taking the engine apart?

The 1.8l engine in 1990 to 1996 there non-interference so there should have been no damage to valves or piston. Can can check for damage by doing a compression test make sure all cylinder's are with in spec turbo models 117-145 psi none turbo 139-168.
Did u make sure the crank number1 piston is on compression stroke when u sent crank mark. You could have crank 180 dergress out

No I did not do the number one piston check at the time. I have a friend helping me who is usually mechanically inclined but I guess he had an off day. But I'll try that. Thanks

Yes. I did have a spark. I don't know if it matters but it was off of the #3 spark I believe.
