If your cambelt teeth have deteriorated, your engine may have been damaged internally. When the engine is operated using the starter motor then engine may not turn at all, or will turn over quicker than normal because no compression pressure is being built up. Remove the spark plugs and do a compression test, if no compression then the cylinder head may need to be removed for repair. Recommend were any doubt exists that a garage is contacted for further advice.
