Best Answer

Manual vehicle have a timing mark located on the transmission you have to find it look for a small inspection hole and find mark but before hand you have to find the advance sensor usually right above the transmission and check timing that way if it's a automatic you have to look all the way on the pulleys and find timing mark and gauage around the back side of the water pump you can kindof see it, I would recommend you look in the haynes repair manual for a better eyes on look so you can get the whole picture but make sure you remove that chip on top of the transmission or else your timing will be off and remember to plug back in after you shut off the car, the manual has lots of pictures to see all the holes and sensors.
