So I finely got my car back together after nasa tech. The problem is it cranks fine and it has spark but it won't start. I haven't verified that I'm getting fuel but I can hear the pump kick on. So any ideas?

We only pulled cams, the grounds are all in place, didn't take the fuel lines off.

I adjusted the cas and that didn't change anything. It doesn't even try to fire, i'll verify that fuel is getting to the injectors when I get home. You can hear the injectors opening and I double checked the timing belt to make sure the marks are lined up.

If the only thing you changed is the cams, that would appear to be the problem.

Well I'm an idiot. I had it timed perfect except I used the dot on the cam gear instead of the E and I mark. sorry for bothering everyone, but thanks for all the help.

Were the gears removed from the cams. If so, were they bolted back on correctly?

(Never mind)
