    Ok so i was going down the highway and then i feel something bog. I put the pedal to the floor and noting happen then it did etc. Ok i pull over and turned the car off and then tried to start it back up it just backed fired and never would start. So i checked the timing belt and i notice it was loose so i went and got the tensioner and rechecked the timing. So i put both cam gears where the arrow was up and the line marks was side by side.Then i pulled the #1 spark plug and put a rod down so i can see when the piston is on the top and set the mark on the cover to the middle mark on my crank pulley. Then i installed a new timing belt and put everything back together and tried to start the car it wouldnt start it spit and spit. Its getting gas but not firing. Could the crank be 180 degrees out? please help thanks

    Yea, you're probably out of time.

    And next time your motor bogs, try letting off the gas instead of flooring it :p
