1994 Isuzu Rodeo Question 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 174134 miles

How do u check and adjust the timing? Just replace the head gaskets, got it all put back together and now it wont start. Fires up with starter fluid but dies when the fluid burns up.

Ignition timing is controlled by PCM. ensure timing marks on belt are aligned properly. The timing belt on the 3.2 SOHC does not get installed at tdc#1 the crank pulley has a half moon cut-out that positions at 3oclock and the slots on the cam pulleys point at raised dots on the rear cover

The timing belt should have arrows of the correct direction, crank turns clockwise
