    does the car turn over faster then normal? this would be a sign it jumped time. however you first need to be sure you are getting fuel, and spark if you are getting both of these we need to move on to other problems if you are not getting fuel or spark that needs to be fixed first. We really need more information to give you better advise at this point.

    Ive put a new coil and sparkplugs and wires on it. if you let it sit for about an hour or so it will start back by spraying a little engine starter through the intake.

    Check engine compression. If the timing belt broke or it jumped the engine bends valves.
