      Or you can get a battery charger rather cheaply.

      Did the timing belt break? If it did, it may have damaged the valve guides, rendering the valve seals useless.

      The thing is I have the battery connected and all the lights, power locks, power windows work, but when I try cranking, the battery seems to die off. I tried jumping it and still wont turn on (it tries to crank but not turn on) I'm suspecting that the timing might be off or a sensor might be causing a problem.

      Oh yeah, I think you maybe right. Do you get any lights and can read it with a scanner? I wonder as the engine turns over it's staling the starter. Did you remove the cam shaft gears? If so how do you know they are lined up correctly. The marking is on the gear but the gear has to be one correctly for that mark to mean anything.

      Took the battery to Walmart to have it replaced. They did a test and found that it had only 65 CCA instead of 600 CCA. They decided to charge the battery but in the end I ended up getting a replacement battery; the old one would not hold a charge (Dead). I Get home, redo all the steps and when it came time to crank the car, nothing still. I also noticed that the timing on the cam wheel is slightly off; the intake alignment is about a half a tooth off every time I put the belt on, and on top of that I also noticed that the belt seems to want to slip off, I put the proper tension every time but the belt looks like it want to fall off, could this be the tensioner failing?

      The water pump is what really tensions the system. The three allen nuts around the pump need to be tighten (locked down) once the system has the right tension. The tensioner should indicate the proper tension.

      So here is the right process. (don't be insulted if you already know this, we just don't know if you knew this.)
      1) loosen the allen nuts around the water pump
      2) rotate the water pump anti-clockwise to loosen tension, rotate the pump clockwise to increase tension.
      3) The tension should move where the arrow moves towards to the notch.
      4) Lock down the allen nuts

      I found the intake cam is sprung and does not like to point as aligned. This is where a cam lock tool where come handy:

      Sorry for the long wait. Long story short, sold the car; never got the car to turn on again.
