Cam timing is off.

Don't use a screwdriver.
Use air pressure to force #2/4 to BDC. You'll have to move the cams to close the valves but it works better than anything else I've found to find true TDC #1.

Well, for one, you're not in the right section- I can help with that. Moved to General Technical Chat.

So, the car starts, then dies? Did you disconnect the IAC at all? Have you removed the IAC to clean it and make sure it's plunger can move- it's not caked up with black oily crud?

So i jus put the air hose to #2 and #4 and it will make #1 tdc?

So long as the valves are shut, yes.
A 4cylinder is 180* opposed. If 1/3 is at TDC then 2/4 have to be at BDC.
