Yes, it will crank if the timing is off but they use timing chains so jumping a tooth isn't real likely. You need to check for fuel pressure AND for spark. If either one is missing, troubleshoot that system. More likely both will be missing in which case the Automatic Shutdown (ASD) relay isn't turning on. The engine computer turns that relay on when it sees engine rotation, (cranking or running). It knows that by the pulses from the camshaft and crankshaft position sensors. The camshaft position sensor is the most likely suspect on the 3.5L engine. It's right on top, in the middle, way up front.
