By the way, you canít see all the timing marks with out removing the valve cover and the front engine cover.

A mechanic that thinks all 4 plugs spark at all times the ignition is turned on?

Stay away from that guy!

Thanks donbrew.
oldblue, I wanted to see if the chain is loose from the top after I take off the valve cover.
Thanks EVERYBODY for the help.

But you don't have to give smart comments when I asked something or I forget to write the entire senerio of what happen. Like you said this site is to point us to the right direction which means help, so when I asked a question why not keep it simple and do just that
Look - you better take it to a mechanic - one that knows that they are doing.
You still don't get it - turning the key and it didn't spark? Well guess what man, of course it will not spark, not unless the engine is turned over. It's not rocket science. And since you said you had not turned the engine over (ie: not started nor attempted to start it) guess what? The so-called mechanic lied to you.

We have tried to keep it simple - but it can only be so simple.

so end of my "smart comments" - have fun

Thanks everybody. Thanks everybody for letting me know what to do and the steps to do it. I'm not rich so therefore I have to TRY to do it myself. Regardless I have to learn. Besides I'm so tiered of mechanics taking advantage of my ignorance of cars and charging me to much than to find out other wise. Thanks again everyone

Whopper, thanks. That's what I'ma do. I'll still place some new spark plugs but I do believe you and everybody else that the spark plugs isn't the only problem. I rather take all y'all advice than the mechanic I'm dealing with

To restate what has been said, another way - if any spark plugs sparked, you were turning the engine over, risking catastrophic damage to the engine.
