Started car and timing was off. Distributor area started smoking. Timed and won't start. I didn't run car hot and have never had any problems starting in the year I've owned it. I'm thinking the cap and rotor are bad. What else could it be. Engine spins great.

Do you
have the same problem?

So you replaced timing belt and car wont start? Better re-check timing settings. Did you do a compression test?

Compression test showed uneven compression across four cylinders. What would cause smoke at distributor cap.

Compression getting into crankcase exiting thru oil passages. Unless smoke smells like burnt electrics?
