You always start with the #1 cylinder at TDC (top dead center) and then put the timing belt and other stuff on. If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. Unless you want to pay someone to do it for you.

Thank everyone for being so supportive. I am not a mechanic and lord knows I can't afford one!

How many times are you going to ask this? Have the car towed to a garage.

What sensor did you change? Get a service manual. The throttle position sensor (TPS) might need to be disconnected when checking timing on your car with a timing light. If timing is still off, remove the timing cover and check the timing marks again. Turn the engine by hand ten times and make sure the marks are still lined up on every turn.
