Well, could be a hundred things. Have you checked for compression? Is the timing correct? Is there simply something not plugged in?

Compression check it, tell ya lots again B)

If you dont have compression, *chances are* your timing marks are off.

And, if you can take the head off and on yourself, by all means dont give up B) Trial and Error is a powerful learning tool :D

yep, 2 or 3 teeth can for sure be the problem B)

my camshaft and my crankshafts pullys line up but not the timing belt,should i take off the timing belt completly and reinstall because i only took off what i needed to?could the timing belt be slipping?

Yes, take it ALL apart, line all of your timing marks up, on the cams, crank etc, then reinstall :D Trust me, once you get it right, it will have been worth all the trouble it is to learn and do B)
