okay i just changed my timing belt myself. (Newbie) and started my car. The thing is that the car doesn't start except it cranks and there is a loud pop and some smoke. I checked the timing and it should be right i mean i followed the manual. Set it to TDC on the camshaft pulleys and then turn the crankshaft pulley 3 teeth to tighten the belt then tighten the tensioner. Now i have a question does the camshaft pulley need to be TDC when the timing belt is tightened or can it move three teeth with the crankshaft? Thats what i don't understand about the manual. If so my timing is off then eh?
