Default 2002 2.4L DOHC PT Cruiser Head Gasket

I'm new to this forum just signed up today. I just re did my head gaskets on my pt after cleaning it all up and putting it back together I went to start it and it just cranks over no start. I checked the fuel presure and it was good checked timing it was dead on and it doesnt sound out of time when starting it, checked and changed spark plugs and ignition coil and got a new battery and it still wont start any ideas? I'm at a lost and don't know what else to try

If it was running when you started then retrace your steps. Start with all the electrical connections coil plug in. Every sensor on the head and intake. Something is not were it should be. Let us know what you find. Pic of the timing would have been good to refer back on right now. This why I would recommend to all coming the belt to take a picture before closing it up. Just in case of these issues. Let us know if you find anything as you recheck things.

its back together now just need some feedback on it i will take some pictures and get them on here i was traveling when 2 puffs of smoke came out of the back of the car then it shut down and wouldnt start it was white smoke so i knew it was a head gasket or coolant getting into a piston my water pump was going out before this happened so i changed it all and this is where im at no warping of the head but a slight warp nothing to effect anything the only codes my car is reading is my battery was disconnect within last 50 starts which is was and my temp sensor voltage is high

Like I said retrace your steps and check that all the connectors are connected securely. Easy to miss things on a big job.
