Are you doing the work yourself? I would start with re-checking the timing belt- but the symptoms you described don't sound like a problem with the belt, initially- then you say it "skipped a tooth"- if you haven't been changing the belt, keeping up on maintenance, and now you have gone in to the engine and are unplugging things- it is now impossible to tell what is going on, from here- you may just want to cut your losses and take the car to a pro- get it running and quit wasting time, the car is worth it-
