If an engine has compression, ignition and fuel, it will run. Find out which isn't there and you've solved the mystery. If you're certain about the timing being right and a good, hot spark, check for fuel pressure. The fuel pump might not be working. Usually compression gives you other symptoms, but if the timing belt/chain has slipped you might have poor compression. If you have no fuel pressure, it could be the pump, a sensor, the filter or a relay or fuse. Of course there are also many other possibilitie, so just enhance your sleuthing skills and good luck.
on the right hand side of the block
right above the oil filter
Trick question there is no 2004 Pontiac sunbird. 1994 sunbirds which is the last year have the oil filter by the right side wheel well, this is similar for the "Sunfire" of later years.

The horn is located on the front of the radiator bulkhead, to the right of the rightside frame member, below the right headlight assembly. You can access it from below the bumper.
as long as it's the same size engine (Probably 3.1), the intake style might be different, so you may have to transfer your intake to the new motor. if the two intakes are the same, the motor will bolt right in.
In the carb right behind the fuel intake line
There are markings on the camshaft sprocket and the crankshaft sprocket. When one is lined up with a notch in the rear timing belt cover, the other should be lined up with the 10 degree mark on the front timing belt cover. Note that you will probably have to remove the front right wheel and splash guard to see one set of markings and the front timing belt cover to see the other.
Replace the whole arm on the steering column. Its a switch as well! He's right, these cars are known for steering column issues related to signals and horn.

your timing marks are incorrect the timing is off. You'll need to reinstall the timing chian with the right timing marks ask a professional for assistance.
I'm assuming you're talking about the front fender, in which case, I'm 90% certain they are identical. The best way to be absolutely certain though, would be to grab your phone book and call a local salvage yard, they can tell you right away what's interchangeable and what's not.
on the right side of the block just above the trany The sensor is located just above the manfol.
