The hiss click noise is your fuel pump priming the fuel system. That is normal, dont worry about it.

As for the starting problem, check that you are getting spark, then check to see if you are getting fuel into the cylinders. Recheck all of your connections and make sure that all of the vacuum lines are hooked up properly.

only code coming up is 12 repeating over and over... i have brand new spark plugs on it, but i am thjinking mabe it is b/c of the alternator. the belt is very loose, i do not know if it is b/c of the tensioner pully being to loose or the belt stretched, but wen i push the belt in it can stretch about 2" and i know it was never able to do that before... when it stretches i see the tension pully get pulled up very easily then it oes back down... i am also thinking it may be the distributor?? please help if anyone had this problem also, thanks

you shouldnt be able to move your belt anywhere near that much. make sure that your tensioner puller is working properly. :D
