My car was running good did not know if the timing belt had been replaced at 140,000. Finally replaced it at 162,000, started getting concerned about it breaking. Changed timing components belt idler tension-er pulley and the water pump since it was in that general area. Replaced the cam and crank seals since they were leaking as well. On removal of the crank sensor, one tab broke off trying to remove the bolt. Replaced with after market sensor and tried to start, turned over but no start. Replaced the cam sensor too to see if that fixed the problem, no avail. Went and replaced cam/crank sensors with another kind, still no spark. Fuel, can smell fuel strong when cranking for long periods and can hear the fuel pump prime when turning on the key. Was told that the aftermarket parts sometimes do not work on these and that a factory manufactured parts are recommended when replacing old parts. All timing marks are aligned up, checked four or five times to make sure so do not think that is the problem.
