TC Starting trouble...

Ok. The silver TC with the T3 & 3g Alt. swap will not start. The power steering mysteriously went out while driving it one day. Opened hood there was dark fluid all over. The next day I go out and discover that the bracket for the PS pump is loose...and the Alt bolt is gone as well( I may not have tightened the alt. belt properly). Now the car will not start. The teeth did not jump on timing. What gives?

Like Pete said, we need more info to help. Is it a normal speed crank but no start? no crank at all? Weak crank? Do you have spark? Good fuel pressure?

If the alt was loose, maybe the belt was also loose (plus maybe covered in PS fluid = slippery)and it wasnt charging the batt??
