    You have a chain, not a timing belt. Unless the chain were broken, (doubtful) you may have a bad crankshaft position sensor. Here is another similar problem with a diagnostic you can try if you are up to it but you will need a scanner that I know you do not have but you can check for the broken wire >>

    The engine cranks but will not start, no spark present while cranking. Has tried a new Crankshaft Position (CKP) sensor and has the same result.
    Tests/Procedures: Using a scan tool, access the (ATM) Actuator Tests and try to actuate the coils to see if the PCM is capable of controlling the coils. If the coils fire, then there is a crank or cam sensor input problem. If they do not fire, then make sure battery voltage is available to the coil pack connector while in the ATM test mode for the coils.

    Potential Causes: Broken Ignition Coil Wiring — Broken Dark Green/Orange wire at the coil connector.
