???????Engine will not start on 1990 Honda CRX

I have a honda crx hf with a 1.5L that will not start. It will try to start but will not run. It almost sounds like the timing is off. Before it stopped running it was idling really high around 3000 rpm.

One of the easiest ways to check the to see if the timing belt has stripped is to remove the distributor cap and see if it turns when the engine is cranked. All the basics must be in place for the engine to run. Ignition, fuel and compression(timing belt correct and working properly). These things must be happening at the right time then you can narrow down were the problem is.
