More than likely out of time. Put cylinder number 1 at top dead center and check crank and cam marks again. If you post good enough pictures, that would help. Did you do just the timing belt? What about tensioner or idler or water pump? Have you listed everything?

Yes thats everything just the distributor and i did replace the timing belt to my uncle that did the timing sais hes sure its timed rite he could be mistaken though. My brother also said it could be my cam censor or something like that could that be a possibility

Out of time gets another vote thats the first path id start on ,these motors run like a rolex watch so go with the basics from the factory n worry bout the rest later

It can be off one tooth i also met to add its a little tricky getting it just right. .
