My car wont start, its getting fuel you can hear the starter doing its thing when I tested the spark plug wire by putting a screw driver in it and had someone start car it had a yellow spark the rotor in the distributer is sitting at #2 instead of #1 and i believe the firing order is 1342 so my only gues is that it has slipped timing. All help is appriciated thank you

    the timing belt has to be replaced. i hope the valves are not bent adding about 1500 to the bill. get it checked asap from a shop to confirm
