  1. Did it run before you changed the timing belt…. bet it did.

    You put the timing belt on one tooth off. quite common. This is why the statring fluid blows back because a valve is open when it shouldn’t be.

    Once you reset the timing marks, spin the motor over a couple of times and confirm the belt isn’t one tooth off before putting it the rest of the way back together.
