Question 93 Impreza Please HELP...!

I have a 1993 Impreza L 1.8 liter. It has approx. 85,00 original miles and had the timing belt and water pump replaced at around 57,000miles. I also have recently installed new plugs and wires. The car ran perfect up until July 5. Iwas driving the car normally down the road when it stalled out and has not started since. The car cranks but just will not turn over. It has been at my local garage for over a month now and they have checked everything. It gets fuel, spark, throws no codes in the computer, the timing belt is still good. They thought it may have been the cam gears and cam sensor so they replaced two cam gears and the sensor and it still will not start.
I need any suggestions anyone could possibly have as to why the car sounds like it is going to start but just will not.

Take it to a Subaru dealership or someone who has a good reputation with Subarus. More than a month is unacceptable amount of time for any diagnostic or repair, except maybe a major rebuild which requires extra time for part location, shipping, etc.

Timing may be off.... Compression tested? Also, various sensors may need a resistance test to see if they are within limits as bad sensors and solenoids are not guaranteed to throw codes, especially on OBDI systems. Alternator & batt must be tested for correct output voltage. The list goes on...

On a positive note, engine internals should be fine if oil and air filter have been changed regularly and the motor has not ingested any water. Gaskets may need checked but might be fine at 85k.

Sportsshifted made a good point. Take it to a Subaru dealer and make hack shop pay the bill.
