I have repaced the timing belt for maintance and now the car has no power. It will start right up. I have checked all the timing marks and adjustments twice and can not find anything wrong. What do you suggest.

Do you
have the same problem?
Yes
No

Did you put engine no.1 piston on its compression stroke/TDC before you set the cam and crank markings

Its the crankshaft sensor. You may have it on upside down.
