I have a 97 Escort and the tension pulley shot into pieces while at a stop light. When this happened the serpentine belt shredded around the various gears. I've replaced the tension pulley, the tension pulley sensor, and the serpentine belt. Now, when I attempt to start the car it tries to turn over but doesn't actually start. Could the shredding of the belt caused a problem or is there something that happened as a side effect?
P.S. I've checked the fuel injectors and they seem to be sending gas and the fuel pumps are in working order.
What else could it be?
