Do you have the m50 or m20 engine?
If you have the m20, did you mess with the timing belt at all? Check the timing and reset it if it's off.

And as for the crank position sensor, did that get tweeked at all?

Bigger belt of the two tells me you most likely have the m50 engine in which case you don't even have a timing belt. Thats chain driven.

Here is the m20 engine:


and below is the m50 engine:

That link has some info on the crank position sensor.
