Who changed the belt? Did a pro do it- the right way? Belt changed, won't start- just sounds like it wasn't done right- engine could be out of time- with a very dangerous chance of bending valves- if a professional garage did it, then they should fix it

Dam , I did it myself- thought timing was bang on . Car was not worth spending £600 +. Old car. Thanks.
