Broken Timing Belt

Just replaced the broken timing belt on my 1999 2.5L 4-cyl. We set the crankshaft to TDC, lined up all the diamonds with the timing marks and put everything back together.

Still won't start.

It's a non-interference motor, so I shouldn't have any bent valves or anything. Any ideas on what to check next?

recheck your timing marks, the belt could have jumped. did you rotate the crank twice and recheck the marks?
