Car was running waterpump was leaking replaced timming belt when I replaced water pump now it wont start all timming marks are linning up turned over by hand rechecked marks still lined up. Iam getting spark&fuel pulled out number 1 & 2 spark plugs it seems like its sucking more than its producing compression it allmost seems like the dist. Is 180 degrees off but how could be when the piston is comming up the roter is pointing towards number 1 & the cam gear is lined up and so is the crank.

Installation (Standard Tensioner - Up To 1997)
NOTE:Disregard marking on intermediate shaft drive belt sprocket.

Ensure crankshaft is still at TDC position.
Remove distributor cap. Rotate intermediate shaft counterclockwise until rotor is pointed at No. 1 cylinder mark.
Ensure camshaft timing mark is still aligned with mark on belt guard.
Install timing belt around crankshaft, intermediate shaft, tensioner, and camshaft sprockets.
Loosen timing belt tensioner center nut. Using spanner wrench, rotate tensioner pulley clockwise to tension belt.
Belt tension is correct when it is possible to rotate belt 90 degrees with thumb and forefinger, half-way between camshaft and intermediate shaft sprockets.
While holding tensioner pulley stationary, tighten tensioner pulley center nut to specification.
Rotate crankshaft 2 revolutions and recheck check belt tension. Adjust tension as necessary. Recheck all timing marks again.
Install timing belt covers.
Install drive belt tensioner bracket.
To complete installation, reverse removal procedure. Adjust drive belts to proper tension.
