1998 TDI no start after Timing Belt and Water Pump!!
So to start off I'm new here. I drive a 1998 Jetta TDI 5 speed. I decided to finally replace my water pump which has gradually started to leak worse and worse. So I also did the timing belt. My first time doing this as well... My first shot, I had the wrong mark on the flywheel... I had the pump locked with a tap that fit nice and snug, and the cam with a feeler gauge and some flat steel. Well when I got the belt on and went to rotate the engine at the crank with my breaker bar I had some resistance. So I obviously knew somethig wasn't right. so I stopped and found the RIGHT timing mark. Got the belt on again, rotated the engine at the crank 3-4 times with the breaker bar and everything went smooth. But when I went to start the car NOTHING! Nothing but a big cloud of blueish smoke from under the hood near the intake manifold... Do I have it out of time yet? I checked and rechecked and everything seems to be perfect! Did I bend the valves by screwing up the first time... Maybe the cloud of smoke is from it being slightly out of time? I read online to loosen the IP mounting bolts and twist the pump towards the engine and retighten but that made no difference...
