Check to see if there is spark and fuel to the engine. Let me know what you find. If you have both, then check engine compression to see if it is low.

If you remove the plugs and crank it, you should hear some compression coming through the spark plug holes.

Did you re check your timing marks?

1.6 will the pully has some kind of hole on it that lines it up so you dont have with do that and I just test the compression and its good and all I did to the fuel line is line up the banjo bolt so it can get fuel

Try this.

If you have fuel and spark, then compression is the last thing
