anyone have any ideas? i know im getting spark and fuel. maybe i did the timing belt wrong? the haynes manual said the indents on the cam gears were to line up with the notch on the top of the rear cam covers. and the crank was to line up the arrow with the notch by the crank angle sensor. is this right?

Don't line it up with the arrow on the crank sprocket... Line it up with the little dash on one of the teeth... You can't miss it... it's about the same as teh little mark on each of the cam gears... When the sprocket is in the correct position, I believe the arrow will point towards the drivers side. They keyway should also be pointing straight down.
