Hyundai Accent GL: Replaced timing belt on Hyundia accent 98.

This answer was rated:

Replaced timing belt on Hyundia accent 98. Belt broke while drive it. Replaced belt, Car now has compression, ignition fire, fuel, and car wont even cough or fart. Does nothing but turn over without starting. And pretty sure about timing marks.
how much compression does it have?
will it fire if you spray starting fluid into the throttle body?
tell me all you can

I do not have a compression checker, and I put fuel into the cylinders directly with no effect. But it does blow paper out of each chamber 5 feet length.
you need to get a compression tester and check the must have more than 100psi to run..
if you are sure the timing belt is on correct...what may have happened,is,,when the belt broke with it running,,it could have warped the valves...if this is the case,,you will need to remove the head and have it repaired....this is why you need to chek the compression..
1-make sure the belt is correct
2-check the compression
