yep, its timing. timing belt is only 54000 miles old, however, i guess the dealer didnt replace the idler pulley, cause the bearings disintegrated. in the time it took the hydraulic tensioner to retighten the belt, the crank jumped ahead 90 degrees. Dont know if the valves are bent yet. Also dont know if being 90 degrees off would prevent spark, since i still have that problem as well.

oh well vacations coming up, and im not giving up on it.
