no spark from the spark plugs on 2000 Chrysler Concorde

I changed the timing chain and water pump and took it around 2 resolutions to put it back in timing, but it still will not start. i have compression but not spark. i was originally replacing the water pump

sounds like a busted timing chain to me, have it checked these cars are famous for these.

not sure what you mean about a busted timing chain. all i did was replaced the water pump in which the chain had to be removed. i alined the cam dots and the crank dot, on the compressing stroke. not spark at the spark plug.

if you have compression you timing belt is ok-it may be off a tooth or two.the spark seems to be your issue.

YES THE SPARK IS MY ISSUE. IF I'M OFF A NOTCH OR TWO WOULD THIS BE ENOUGH FOR THE TIMING SPARK TO BE OFF AND KEEP IT FROM SPARKING. I'VE RESET THE TIMEING ABOUT 7 TIMES. FACING THE CAR I HAVE THE LEFT TIMING MARK (.) AT 12 O'CLOCK AND THE RIGHT TIMING MARK AT ABOUT 11 O'CLOCK FOR THE CAM'S. THE CRANK MARK IS ALIGNED WITH THE OIL PUMP MARK ON THE OIL PUMP HOUSING.
