It requires special tools There are no keyways or timing marks on the cam gears. The carnk gear has a key way, and a small mark that looks like a nick in the pulley that gets lined up with the angled side of a mark in the block that looks like a wedge. There is also a spaecial tool you can use on the crank gear, but I always pull the #1 spark plug out and stick a long screwdriver on top of the piston and rock the engine back and forth and watch the screwdriver handle go up and down to find TDC, then use the mark on the block to get it dead on. The cams use a flat bar that is a tool made just for that engine across the groves cut into the back of the cam shafts. The cmas and the tool are made so that when they are lined up, the bar will also be laying across the top of the head. I have heard that a standard flat file is also the right thickness, but I am not sure. To get the engine to time right, you have to loosen the bolts that hold the gears to the cams. The gears will freewheel. With the gears loose, set you bar across the cams, line up your crank, put the belt on, and set the tensioner. Then after everything is in place and the belt is fully installed, double check your crank, then tighten down the cam gear bolts. DO NOT ALLOW THE SPECIAL TOOL TO BEAR ALL THE TORQUE WHILE YOU TIGHTEN THE CAM GEAR BOLTS! You will break the cams if you do! Each cam has a place for a wrench. Use a wrench to hold the cams while you torque down each bolt. And dont forget to remove the special tool before you try to crank the engine over for the same reason.
located on the cam shafts there are two marks one on each that have to be aligned!

Go to this forum and I'm sure you'll find the answers to your questions. If you're a Contour owner, the forum is an invaluable to answer most issues regarding Ford Contour and Merc Mystiques.
I have a 2004, colorado, and it dont have a pcv valve, just a hose from the crank to the resonator.
If the engine were to backfire for whatever reason and the pcv valve is stuck open, the backfire could carry into the crank case and ignite the crank case fumes. I have seen valve covers blown off an engine from this situation.
IVC is Intake Valve Closing, is the crank degrees when the intake valve is closed, after TDC(top dead center).
It sounds like your valve cover gasket wasn't installed properly or not torqued down properly. Is it leaking oil?
possible vacume leak in the egr valve or bad valve itself.
pcv valve wont work properly
