Won't start

edited August 2018 in Kia
I have a 2004 Kia Amanti with the 3.5l engine i have replaced tge ignition coils and the fuses but still won't start it is getting fuel and i have pulled out the plugs in the front to see if it has spark and nothing the car ran until I parked it to find the harmonic balancer pulley for the alternator split. Does this car requires the pulley and belt to be together or can i check it out?

    Fix the known problems first.
    If the pulley is broken, then when it came apart, it may have damaged other things.
    Timing belt and crank sensor run off of the crankshaft, so a bad pulley and there may be more damage than what you can see.
  • Ok so i have taken the timing cover off and i can see the CPS but the belt is in the way how do i loosen the belt i don't know which pulley is the tension pulley and the only damage i have found was the a.c. belt was ripped and the power steering belt was frayed along with the harmonic balancer issue but before i change the cps I still feel like it should be throwing out a OBD code if faulty should i still change it or leave the sensor be cause i see no frays on its wires or anything
