Did the original belt break? Check compression on all 4 cylinders next! Post results.

No belt didn't break, some of the cogs were sheared off the belt. timed it all working just won't start. got lucky n got to it before it broke..

Missing teeth on the belt is even worse than breaking! Possible bent valves,, check compression NEXT!
