Question windstar not starting

My 1995 Ford Windstar won't start. We changed the serpentine belt and tensor pulley, a couple days ago. My husband has checked if it is getting gas, yes it is. There is no spark.

I hate to say it but more details are needed. Well if no spark.. is it distributorless ignition or does it have a distributor.. if so check the cap and rotor as they are cheap and do wear out.. if its distributorless check the ignition module and have it tested at a shop that is qualified..

My question is how do you know for sure there is gas?

As much detail as possible as there can be a ton of things going on.

Can you post a link to an online schematic for your car?
I assume it cranks?

I agree with doobie, any additional details may be helpful. Any prior problems or symptoms? It ran okay for a couple of days after the work and now won't start? Cranks, but won't fire, as he-she asked? You've pulled a plug wire and there's no spark? How did you check for fuel supply?

The cam positiom sensor is close to where you /he was working seen them get cracked and break off a couple days after and kill the vehical (3 this year by DIYr's ) It's very easy to do and not know it my own techs have cracked 2 this year themselves.
