    If it's not starting, what makes you think the timing is off? It could be, but you have to have fuel, spark, and compression for the engine to start. The ignition relay replacement seems to have gotten you power to the starter. So now you need to check that you have the 3 things you need to have. Checking plugs, wires, fuel pump, fuel lines, fuel injectors, compression test. Could be any one, or a couple of, different things.

    Have you pulled any codes to see what might be happening?
