Default Car won't start unless I hold down gas pedal

Yesterday I went to start my car to move it and after a few seconds it just shut off. It won't start back up unless you hold the gas in. Then it runs rough as hell and sounds like a Subaru. I had some spare distributor stuff laying around so I changed it out just to see and nothing. Coil-cap-rotor
I put new plugs in it and pulled them after I got it to start. They are black as coal and wet from gas. I was tuned in June so I'm not sure if that may have something to do with this or not. It was done at IMW by John Kerr and I know he's good at what he does so I wouldn't think that's the cause but who knows.

Any suggestions?

Jumped timing belt? The fact you dont state what kind of car, what engine, what mods, etc. really doesnt help though.

Nothing was changed on the car. It ran fine a few days before.
Turned out it was the timing belt. I re set it all and it starts again and idles. Revs up pretty rough so I think it's still maybe 1 tooth off. It's cold and raining out so I called it a day. Now I know where to go back to anyways.
