i just finished up replacing the timing belt on my mothers 01 sportage. Ive been trying to get it started for an hour now, tested the yellow and green wire to fp and it has power. I set the timing to tdc but wont fire at all. It has sat for almost a year so i replaced the fuel and even tried starting fluid:confused::confused: Need help asap

Was the engine running before you replaced the timing belt??

Start by verifying the static engine timing... Philip

it was running fine then died on here running about 35, i have been overseas working and just now have time to work on it. The timing is spot on, could it have slammed a piston into the valves???

Perform a compression test and post the numbers...

All sparks out, Fuel/ignition cut, throttle wide open, crank until gauge peaks.... Philip
