So we will start at the beginning, the timing belt lost some teeth the car wouldn't start. Bought tools, bought new belt and pulleys, looked online to find out little tips besides the chilton way and went to work. Replaced belt followed procedures put it all back together, car started, went for drive - no power. Decided I had missed something, so I did it again. This time, had some power but the engine would cut out when the throttle was pushed to hard. So I did it again, let the serpentine belt off when I put it back together, sick of busting my knuckles trying to get it off. This time the engine wouldn't start
it should start right? I need to go buy a new tensioner for the serpentine so it won't be on again until tomorrow. Anyone have any ideas? I have made sure to rotate the crank clockwise until it touches the pin, the camshafts line up with the bar then I put the timing belt on tension it with the mark lined up, and then rotate it 2 or 3 times to make sure everything is still lined up. Not sure what I'm missing........thanks for any help in advance.
